Default How do you attach bottle caps???

Hi everyone!
Ok, I bought some bottle caps a while back. They were just the silver ones with nothing on the inside/back of them-just the smooth silver. I hot glued them on the bows and EVERY one of them popped off. Do I need to put something on the back/inside of them? What glue do I use? Sorry, this has probably been written before but I couln't find a thread on it. Thanks for anyone's and everyone's help!!

I usually put a small amount of hot glue in the inside and then place my ribbon in it. I use a popsicle stick and then push the ribbon in until it touches the bottom of the bottle cap. After that I cover it with more hot glue and then add a 1" wooden disk to the back. Hope that helps.

Ok, I just spent $50 on bottle caps from sweetangelsbowtique (got her name from this forum!) so if anyone else has any other snazzy ways to make sure these things stick feel free to add your 2 cents!! LOL!

E6000 glue works the best! Also check out Tonya's thread on how to attach bottle caps http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/how-m...ottlecaps.html
