Default Flattened Bottle Cap Help Needed!!!!

I am new to adding bottle caps to my bows and have looked and looked for the best way to attach them but am even more lost. What is the best way to attach flattened ones? Gorilla Glue, maybe? I've seen methods for the regular bottle caps but none for flattened ones.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

I have always heard e6000 is the best.

I am having the same problem. I have tried the E6000 and did not like it. Now I am punching two holes and insert very fine wire in the cap before I insert the graphic on the inside of the cap. I purchased gorilla glue today and will try that on the caps where the graphic is on the top of the bottle cap.

e6000 around the sides and then put a little dot of hot glue in the middle to hold it in place, but don't mix the e6000 and the hot glue then neither of them will work

I was at my local dollar store and picked up some adhesive foam mounting squares and they seem to be working very well when paired with super hot glue. Hope this works for you!!!

First couple of bows I did with flattened bottlecaps, I used just hot glue. They ALL popped off within a few days. Now I only use E6000 and they've never come off.

Thanks for the responses. The gorilla glue worked but I put too much glue and it does not dry clear. I will have to go back to the E6000 but found it too difficult to get out of the tube. I guess that sounds silly.

Thanks for all the responses! It's been 4 days since I made the first bottle cap hair bow with the mounting squares & hot glue combo and it seems to be very secure. I've even tried to pull it apart to no avail.
