Default Re: Bottlecaps in korkers?

I put the cap on that E6000 and clip it on each side with a clothes pin until it cures.

HTH!
Thanks so much megan I really wasn't sure how to do this. I wasn't even sure it could be done lol It's just that the only bows I've made so far are korkers and raggies (and it just doesn't work in a raggie). I will try your suggestion, thank you!

I think the pic is deleted, you can see the bottlecap on the full size korker
Vanitha, thanks so much for the links! They definitely help

Ahhh, true... true


Before I posted asking for help, I tried to just glue one in the center of the korker I had, but the curls just covered it up. That's why I thought I'd ask to see how others do it.
