Question Bottlecap Bows

Hello...I'm new to this site & just trying to find my way around. I'm making bottlecap bows for my girls & needed suggestions on how to keep the cap on the bow. I hot glued the cap & used tacky glue and it fell off with both. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome...I use e6000 glue.
I usually glue an old button inside the cap.
Then glue the button to your bow.

I use a button also, sometimes two depending on the thickness and then glue down with E6000.

Thank you ladies!!! I appreciate all the ideas. Let me pick your brains about flip flop bows. I'm making them for my girls and I did a pair but, I don't like the way the bow stayed on the flip flop. Would love any suggestions.
