I haven't tried it yet, but they told me to put a piece of 3/8 ribbon in the bottle cap and a fill the bottlecap with E6000 and let it dry then use the 3/8 ribbon to attach it to the bow.
You can also glue your ribbon to the inside of the bottlecap and layer buttons so that you don't have to use so much glue to fill the bottlecap.

I wipe the inside of the cap with alcohol to remove any oils, then put some E6000, then a piece of 3/8" ribbon (long enough to wrap around your bow), then more E6000, then a scrap button. Once dried, attach to bow with E6000. Never had one fall off that way! HTH!

I know that alot of people already punch small holes for the neclaces...could you punch holes top and bottom and use a fine wire to tie it on? Would eliminate the choking risk.
