These look a lot like the bows I made for my daughter when she was a little girl.  In the 80's we made several bright shoelace hair bows.  They were looped and twisted and attached to the barrette by wrapping thin wire to secure the loops to the barrette.  A hot glue gun was used to attach any goodies (like the candy corn piece) to the center of the bow.  The loops were basically a series of figure 8's.  The ends could also be tacked with glue until you are ready to wrap the wire around it.

Hope this helps,

I have seen some instruction pdfs for sale on ebay. type in boutique bow instructions. They were about 10 bucks.

But, I bet if you just bought some clips and some ribbon, you could figure out how to do the same w/o a guide.

I just signed up for a yahoo group. This one is free, there are a bunch that are related to buying a guide. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/HairBowsAnonymous

I just started making some ribbon clips also. I need to find a supplier for clips. I found some clips at www.minordtails.com, but I am not in love with the quality. I post any more info that I find.

Good luck. Let me know if you find any part suppliers.
