Default how to properly attach bottle cap to clips

I always see really neat bottle cap clippies so I purchased some great caps from several of you talented ladies and lined some clips but now I'm like o.k. this seemed easy but how exactually is the best way for me to attach them, do I just fill the inside of the cap with a big old glop of hot glue or should I try to find something to go into the cap such as a disc or something, how could something so simple drive me crazy.
any words of wisdome would be great.

I know lots of people attach a disc (like a wood one) on the inside and then glue to the clip.

I actually just dab some E6000 on the bottom edges of the cap that will touch the alligator clip and let it set up really well. I have made several this way, and they are nice and secure. My daughter wears her Scooby bottlecap clip made this way ALL the time, and no issues!

This is what I do as well... once the E6000 sets ups they are really really secure!

Thanks alot. do you have to put something on them to hold the cap on the clip like a clamp or something or just hold it with your fingers for a bit, I know I'm being high maintenance today but I think I will go the e600 route like you guys suggest. Many thanks .

I don't. The caps are pretty heavy themselves, so I just hold for a minute and then let them be

I usually glue either plain 1" wooden discs from Michaels or 1" buttons inside the cap and then glue that to the clip.

I use felt pad, like the ones you put under furniture to prevent scratching the floor.
