Thread needle onto cut end of thread. Poke needle through fabric from the front. Pull thread to the back so there is a tail of 3 or 4 inches. Remove needle. Double knot the end of thread on the back side of fabric, trim it and pull the knot tight to fabric. Make couching stitches and unwind floss as needed. Repeat process to finish the couching thread.
