Default Attaching bottlecaps to bows.

I've been looking through past threads on how to attach a bottlecap to a bow. I haven't found the answer. I loved the one that had a u shaped 3/8 ribbon glued to the bottlecap and then filling it with hot glue. Then I read it didn't hold up in Houston's Humidity. Guess where I live. Well not in Houston but just outside. So, does anyone have any easy advice. The easier the better...

try it with the E6000 instead of hot glue, much stronger =)

Yes, E6000. I put a dab on the cap, then a piece of ribbon, more E6000 and then a button on top of the ribbon. Make sure you let it dry for at least 24 hours!

I have a tutorial on my web site here for attaching caps to bows.

But it is a 100% agreement about E6000!

Great tutorial thanks so much. I've always been nervous to try bottlecaps but I really like how they look.
