Default Bows made with basic barrettes & 1/4 ribbon?

I am looking for instructions on how to make the simple 80's style barrettes, the ones with the braided look and hanging strings? I saw some at Gymboree, and can't figure it out. Probally simple but I'm clueless right now. Haven't been on here in a while (13 yr old crashed my old computer!) so there may already be instructions somewhere, but could someone point me in the right direction? Thanks...

OMG!!! I TOTALLY forgot about those barrettes. I used to wear those when I was young. I had a ton to match all my outfits. I don't remember how I made them, though...too many years ago. lol. Oh, the 80's...we had some cool fads, didn't we??? Swatch watches, friendship pins, Jordache jeans, leg warmers...fun memories!

I've taken those to a show before and all the moms were like "I had those when I was a kid" and bought some. I did a bunch in the local school colors and there were all gone in a matter of no time.

I found some originally at Walmart but if my memory serves me correctly, I think they had some at Hobby Lobby last time I was there.
Here's my barrettes that I had listed on my website that someone bought:

I made about 3,000 of those and sold them in the 80's. We sold them then for $1.50 each.
