Glue the sponge to the blade, then lay the topsheet down

Or you might stick it temporarily down to plastic sheet or something

I am not too familiar with the ping pong regulations but I was told by a player who plays in tournaments that rubbers should be used unmodified and you are not allowed to stick a sheet on top  to a sponge in the bottom.  It is ok if you buy the rubber  from factory with sheet on top attached to sponge below. I did not even know what OX meant. He told me most umpires in small tournaments do not enforce this because mostly they do not know this law and also don't care even if they do but  he said they enforce it in bigger tournaments

People have been putting their own top sheet and sponges together for years I don't think it's illegal

A OX rubber is a pimpled rubber with no sponge
so gluing a OX rubber and a sponge onto a blade is usually no problem and no difference to glue OX onto wood
As Cole said you should glue the sponge on first to the blade the later glue the OX sheet on top

however in the case of some long pimple rubbers
 the 2.2mm sponge and the longer long rubbers may be over the legal limit, so better to do some checking first

If the op was going to glue a inverted top sheet onto a sponge (pimples down) then that is a lot harder

Harder to keep it down over time maybe, but the operation of gluing some  pips out topsheets down is very difficult. Mostly about gluing the base sheet

   DEVIL IS STRONG. BE ALERT.

Yes, God will always favour those who willingly obey by the Rules of the 4 mm limit. On the contrary, Devil will always encourage you to slight the Rule.
Using rubbers over 4 millimetres thick is a deadly sin anyway, as the sin being abhorent both on GOD and HUMANS.

I just read the original post and realized I answered the wrong question.  You have two choices really, rubber cement or latex glue like tear mender. I personally thinkElmer's rubber cement is going to work as well as anything

Thanks cole_ely, I think I try it with rubber cement which is easily available locally.

Noted on the 4 mm limit. Thanks again
