Default Cheer bow help! materials/pricing

Hello all, I've been asked to make 25 (yikes!) (big deal for me!) cheer bows and I am trying to figure out the best way to make them in order to stay within their budget. They want a simple design, two loops, tails down. What would be the best type of ribbon/material to layer on regular grosgrain ribbon (for a 2 layer effect), and where's the best place to purchase? they are trying to stay under $10 a bow...They are asking for something shiny, sparkly or having "bling". I've looked on HG and hairbowcenter and didn't see anything, maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing? Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you in advance!

If they want something shiny or sparky but inexpensive I would use sequin fabric (it is also called confetti dot fabric). You can get in at Joann fabric, or online and fuse it to the ribbon with heat n bond.

I agree that might be your only option. Rhinestones and sparkly material can push your cost up, and you don't want to cut into your profits if they only want a $10 bow.
