I had these ideas of two ribbon bows, or maybe a sequined layer on top, but I don't know if I can pull it off for $5. I know $10 but not sure about $5. Also, I have no idea how to charge for bows...I've seen other threads so I guess I do have a lil idea but my head really is starting to spin. But it's ok...I love a challenge.

Does anybody know what kind of bow I could give within the rage of $5 - $10 and still make a decent profit.
If you are looking to provide a bow with a sequin layer, you could possibly provide a solid sequin 2 1/4" bow or a two layer (one with sequin) for about $10.

Personally, I find that if I do not charge at least $10 for bows with sequins or spandex, it is really not worth my time or the payment. I love making bows, but there are additional materials involved and time as well.

I posted a couple of pics, to give you an idea of what I would sell for $10.
