How do they get a dandelion seed-head in a glass paperweight?

The paperweight isn't glass, it is casting resin. The mold for the plastic casting resin is partially filled, the flower is placed in position on the resin, then the mold is filled the rest of the way, leaving the flower suspended part way.
