Default attatching bottlecaps to bows?

I am stumped and wonder if I should just stop trying! I have tried every method possible and here they are:
hot glueing bottlecap directly to bow, falls off easily!
extra hot glue to a knot center falls off as well.
hot glue 1" wood circle to ribbon and then to bow, falls off with little tug.
E6000 to ribbon and wood circle took 3 days to dry, doesnt come off but the fumes still linger and it drives me nuts! It works but is there another way to do it without the fumes. The wood circles and e6000 was the only thing that works. the few that I have mad at my booth sold right away. PLEASE help, some ladies have mentioned they don't have any problems, what am I doing wrong. Please help!!!

Here's what I came up with...

Take about 4 or 5 inches of 3/8 wide ribbon and make a "U" out of it. Put a dab of hot glue in the middle of the bottom of the cap and glue the curve of the "U" there with the ends sticking up in the air. (I temporarily hold the two "U" ends together with an alligator clip to get them to stand up.) Make sure the two ends are positioned right to make the bottlecap rightside up and not sideways or crooked for when you put it on the bow.

Then, fill in over the glued section and all around it, filling the bottlecap from side to side. Takes a bit for the hot glue to harden, but the alligator clip helps hold the ends in the air while it dries. When it's done you should have a cap that's filled 1/2 with glue with two ribbons sticking straight out of it about a half an inch from each other. Since the glue is continuous underneath, it doesn't even look bad from the bottom.

I use a dab of glue to center it on the bow and then wrap the two ribbon ends around to the bottom of the bow like I would a regular bow center.

I actually TRIED to pull one of these off the bow and it wouldn't budge. Just what I came up with when no one had really answered the question that I could see.

I have had so many bottle caps fall off with hot glue. I hope this works thats a lot of glue.

I tried e6000, the smell is beyond annoting. They didnt come off but I let them dry for like 5 days and they still smelled.

I use Super Glue--just be very careful not to glue your finger to the ribbon. I also double or triple knot the center knot--then I cover the knot with the Super Glue and then hold the bottlecap firmly on the knot for about 1-2 minutes. I've never had a problem with bottlecaps coming off. HTH!!

Awesome idea. I still haven't tried to put bottle caps on my DD's bows yet, but I am totally going to use your method when I do
