Default Bottlecap help???

Okay, so I have a bunch of questions. I have never attempted to make these, but i wanna try! So I have a few questions....

1) When printing images, can it be on regular paper, or does it have to be photo paper? I have heard you can cut stuff from magazines and such too, so I was just curious.

2) Can I use Durabond duraclear varnish? Or does it have to be the envirotex stuff?

3) When making them for hair bows, from what I understand, you put the image on the top(flat) piece of the bottlecap right? And, can you just hot glue it to the top of a bow, or does the inside have to be filled with foam or something first? (e6000?)

4) When making magnetic bottlecaps, for interchangeable necklaces, do you put the image on the inside of the cap, so the flat (smooth) side is the part you glue the magnet to?

I'm sorry it's so long, but I just want to make sure i am understanding them right?

Thanks so much for anyones input!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I print my stuff on photo paper BUT sometimes the ink runs when you put the glaze on it SO I glue the image on the cap and then put clear fingernail polish on it let it dry then put the glaze on it.
I do use things from catalogs...they work great and turn out cute.
I useSun and Moon Glaze. I found it on etsy and love it.
I do the interchangable necklaces and put the images on the inside so it doesnt poke your neck when wearing them.
Cant help with the bows

i just make a center knot and glue it on the bow like normal then put some hot glue in the cap and press it onto the knot

some people put e6000 in the cap then a cut of ribbon then fill it with e6000 then let that dry over night and then glue the ribbon around the bow and clip

i use the etlite never heard of the other stuff lol, i have used diamond glaze but didn't like it cause it kept on getting bubbles in it.

I put a dab of e6000 on the inside of the cap, lay a strip of ribbon, then another dab of e6000, and a button. Then attach to the bow with more e6000 and wrap the ribbon around to the back!
