First I think you need better wire cutters to trim the stems. If the stem seems unstable you can wrap some floral wire to add strength. Also you could push the stem in the foam then put a little hot glue on the stem and stick it back in the foam. With that just be careful to not add to much glue because it will melt that foam.

You can also put the flower buds on a stronger “stem”; just pop the flower buds off of their stems and then hot glue them on to a sturdier wire.  If you have any stems left over from your dollar store flowers, this would work perfectly.  And yes, some of the nicer flowers are harder to cut; like PP said, get a good pair of needle nose pliers, and sometimes it helps to cut some of the plastic casing with scissors so that you can get to the wire more easily.
