My Ribbon Barrette Maker Review and Giveaway

How many of you remember growing up and making those thick bracelets? I remember I would take my floss string, get the colors I wanted, tie a knot at the end and safety pin it to my jeans. Once I was done I had a one of a kind bracelet. Things have come a long way since then, now they have cute little trays to help making those fancy friendship bracelets with.

How many of you remember “My Friendship Bracelet Maker” that hit she shelves last year? Well the creators of My Friendship Bracelet Maker is at it again, they have now come out with a My Ribbon Barrette Maker.

Recently, I was contacted and asked if I wanted to review either of these products. With me already having tried out the My Friendship Bracelet Maker, I went with the My Ribbon Barrette Maker. When it first arrived I was super excited, I sort of got this one for myself to review, I mean I will share with the dear daughter, sometimes!

I had to try this out, so I broke open the box, pulled out all the directions and got to work. The first one I did was for my niece, a light bluish, and pink.

pink and blue barrettesweet niece

My niece was so excited about her new barrette that auntie made for her, she had to wear it to school the following day. I found these barrettes to be super easy to make and tons of fun. I have since made 3 more, one for my daughter, one for my other niece, and one just testing out some different things.

purple and black barretteI am going to say the over all time in making one barrette from start to finish was about 15 minutes. There were a few things I didn’t like with the end results so I am going to try and make it a bit different. I would like to make the knot when I am done be on the inside of the barrette, and I will be trying some different things with this little system… This is on the down low, but once I try it out and like the results I will be sure to show everyone.

I also wanted to see what it would look like with more than two colors. This system is built to do only two colors, however, with a little time you can do more than two. I tested this with three colors, and the end result was…

The three color one did take more time, but I think the end result was extremely nice. I have tried both the friendship bracelet maker, and the ribbon maker and I have to say I like them both, the barrette maker just a bit more. I think these would make great gifts this holiday season.

Purchase: My Ribbon Barrette Maker retails for $24.99 and can be purchased on Amazon.

One lucky reader of The Neat Things in Life, will have their own chance to win either the friendship bracelet maker or the barrette maker.
