Use bondo flexable bumper repair kit. They sell it at Autozone for like 6 bucks. It hardens in like ten min. I repared huge uneven rips in mine and it looks good as new now.

when applying that ****, take a rag and place a magnet from an old car speaker inside of it, place that on the outside of the bumper when glueing, and for the inside use something that the magnet will attach to. hopefully it'll be strong enough to keep everything crisp while it dries.

Mine was really bad so I had to sand the whole bumper down and repaint. You said it fit together on yours and you couldnt tell so I would bondo it from the back and use the peice of screen cloth to put down over the tear to keep it strong. You will be able to hold it while it is drying because it dries so fast.
