Default Help With Bottle Cap Bows

I've Gotten In Making Bottle Cap Bows & I Love Them. They're So Fun To Do But I'm Having A Really Hard Time Getting The Bottle Caps To Stay On The Bows.

I Bought Some Of My Caps From A Fellow Bow Maker & She Had Pieces Of Felt On The Back For Mounting Them But I Still Can't Get Them To Stay.

For The Bow Makers What Kind Of Glue Do You Use For Them?
&If You Can Give Me Any Sites That Sell Bottle Caps For A Decent Price Could You Point Me In Their Direction? I Found Some Nice Ones But They're So Expensive

When I add them to bows I do this. Put a little hotglue in the cap & then put my center ribbon inside the cap & push it down with a popsicle stick then put a little more hotglue & add a button (or something that will fit inside the cap) and then I add some more hotglue & add it to the bow & tie it off. I haven't had one come apart this way. I usually try to let it cool completely before I put it on the bow.
As for the caps are you wanting them premade or just blank caps? I have both but only a handful on my website.

Try ebay, too. You can buy scratched colored ones for 1/2 the price. If you want a big quantity better to buy where GH Butterflies said. Thanks for all the info GH Butterflies.

I use hot glue and put a little in the cap, press my ribbon in, and then fill the rest of the cap with hot glue. Let it cool, use E6000 to adhere it to the top of the bow, wrap the sides of the ribbon down around the clip, and voila - you are set to go! No I just need to figure an easy secure way to adhere to alligator clips!
