Default Ribbon is comming off clips


I have been using hot glue to attach ribbon to my clips and the end of the ribbon on the back of the clip is detaching on some after they are dry. I can not figure out what the problem is, is there an issue with the hot glue sticking to the metal?

Should I be using another type of glue?

Thanks for your help!

I haven't had a problem using high temp hot glue. Maybe you're not getting quite enough on there?

Hum, it is a Thermogrip glue gun but I don't know if it is high or low temp. I have had a life time supply of glue sticks for as long as I can remember...LOL maybe I need to go the store and start fresh!

Is low temp or high temp better to bond to the metal?

Thank you for your help!
