Do these bring you back to the day? They sure bring me back. For me nothing says the 80's quite like these. When I was in grade school these were all the rage and we had them in every color. Oops, I think I just aged myself. Oh well! I remember learning to make them in Girl Scouts.
Ahh the memories.....
If you would like to make some for yourself follow this quick tutorial.
With your barrette open, take your 2 ribbons and slide them to the top.
Then take your first ribbon and weave it through the bars.
Then do the same on the other side. Making sure to slide it through above the first ribbon.
Take the second color and do the same. Repeat this till you reach the end.
I loosened it up a bit so you could see how it is woven through.
When you reach the end knot the ribbons so the braid will stay tight.
Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I would love to hear from you. Enjoy!
