My Ribbon Barrette Maker (giveaway)

The contest is closed. The winner is

The fashions from the 80’s are back. Naturally, I’m thrilled to see the girls wearing styles they used to make fun of me for wearing. I look back now and cringe in embarrassment at our hairstyles. The styles in the late eighties involved seeing how “poufy” we could make our hair. The bigger, the better! Feathered bangs for girls, those mullets for guys that looked like they had a rodent sitting on their head. One style I am glad to see return is the Ribbon Barrette. Whenever I saw a young girl wearing one of these, I had to say, “Awww! How cute!”

When my oldest was young, she yanked ribbons out of her hair faster than I could put them in. Now she can’t get enough hair accessories. I knew she would enjoy designing barrettes to match her outfits and her personal style. My Ribbon Barrette Maker, designed for ages six and up, allows her to ‘express herself.’

Much like the pattern followed in the My Friendship Bracelet Maker, a barrette is slid onto the loom. Colorful ribbons are held in place by the loom and woven using a pattern and colors she chooses. Each kit includes 8 barrettes, 16 ribbons and 128 colored beads. The handy storage tray included under the loom keeps items in place and prevents spills. This video shows the Ribbon Barrette Maker in action.


When I find a toy encouraging creativity, craftiness, and fashion, I’m sold. Learn more about the Ribbon Barrette Maker on their Facebook page.

    I have long hair and so does my daughter so we are both always looking for things to hold our hair back. I can imagine using different colored ribbons for differnt holidays to make holiday themed barrettes with this. What a great idea.

    I think the Rafflecopter is asking the wrong question. I love the I love Lucy chocolate factory pajamas, but I’d rather tell you about how I used to make those clear bows with candies and different things inside of them. They were adorable.

    Now that my daughter is almost seven, she is finally interested in actually leaving hair accessories in her hair. She also loves barrettes and ribbons, and I know she’d love this ribbon maker! :)

    I have no idea how to answer the question on Crazy for Bargains since there isn’t a link to click on in this post to the site. But I love barrettes and my girls wear them all the time. Would love to win this so we could make them ourselves.

    As far as the question: I liked the looks of the bras at Crazy for bargains and was quite impressed with their prices on them.

    The ribbon barrette kit looks like a bunch of fun. Seeing them did bring back memories as I was a child of the 80s. I remember being given some barrettes like that and I thought they were so pretty!
