making a push in cage out of hardware cloth is nice.  let the attendants out, put her on a comb with some open brood cells, put the cage over her, and once she starts laying she should be accepted.

here is some info on the push in cages.

The push in cage is by far the most reliable (put over emerging brood).  A candy release from a cage with no attendants would be next and a candy release from a cage with the attendants still there is the simplest, but less reliable.
