I think that what I would do is put a thin layer of glue on the back of the scrolled piece and then wipe most of the glue off so that there is not enough to squeeze out. You might want to apply, wipe, apply again and wipe again to let the wood sort of absorb the first glue application a little to make sure that there is still enough glue to hold it down. You will need to put something relatively heavy on it to clamp it down so that you get uniform pressure and no warping caused by the moisture in the glue if it is very thin. If there is a solid/unscrolled edge around it, leave a little more glue there and clamp it down with cauls, making sure that there is less glue towards the inside to avoid squeeze out.
