Default 80's style ribbon braided barrettes

If you lived through the 80's you remember these. I found an archived tut for them. I made so many of these in the early 80's! I'm going to make some red and green ones for my next show and see if any 80's mom's buy them!

This is a great craft for kids to do with you!

Oh, and I've seen the barrettes at Wally World (Wal-Mart)

OMG!! those are GREAT! I remember them too! I remember making my folks take me to Ben Franklin to get ribbon, going home and 'doing my homework" while I made barettes and then sold them at school the next day! LOL Do you remember putting the beads on the ends too? hehe! I might just have to make myself some! LOVE IT!!

I, too have been thinking of reviving these....my Mom made them for me when I was little, and they're just nostalgic for me. Thanks for the tip about the clips being available @ Wal-Mart...I hadn't gone so far as to look for them yet. Hope you have good sales with those!!

If so neither have I! And I never want to grow up if it means losing that feeling!!! I just started making bows and bottlecaps but have been making jewelry for the last 16 years and still get so excited when I come up with something new!
