Default Those 80s slide barrettes with the braided ribbon..

I saw these in Gymbo a couple of weeks ago and wished I had picked up a pair to see how they were made. I don't even know what you call them anymore!! LOL They were popular when I was a girl (I am SO dating myself) in the 80s. They were a slide barrette with I think 1/4 in ribbon braided down the sides and you leave the ends down a couple of inches?!? Does anyone know what I am talking about and know where I can get instructions? Thanks!!
Amanda

Ok, so then do you remember how to do it?? LOL! I remember making them...but don't remember how..
Found some similar, but the ones I remember are on the slide barrettes with the two sides and open in the middle.

I should of looked at the link first. But as far as I can remember didn't the streamers go down at the other end?? Also, didn't they have beads or something like that at the end of the streamers?? Maybe I am wrong but that is what I remember from the 80's.

Oh, I do remember those days . Are these really coming back in style? I haven't personally seen anyone wearing these around here where I live yet. Has anyone been selling them at shows? If so, have they sold well?
