How do you remove the dried lavender buds from the plant?

I have been growing lavender for several years and usually just dry the entire stem. I would like to make sachets with just the lavender buds. I don't know an efficient way to remove the buds from the stem. After I cut the lavender I let it dry for several weeks. I tried rubbing them off and cutting them but I keep getting little bits of stems. I wouldn't mind this but the pieces of stem poke through the sachets. Can anyone help me?
