Not sure what these should be called. I had some parts from an old tambourine and wanted to re-purpose them in some way. So I took a piece of probably pine and ripped a strip off both sides. Then I kerfed out notches for the little cymbals and glued pieces of the the sides back on. After that I drilled holes through the piece to accept a barbecue skewer all the way through. This skewer is what holds the cymbals. As I recall, one reason the old tambourine was jettisoned is that the cymbals were held in by nails which kept working themselves out.
