Going to try and fundraise $504 + plane ticket + spending/food money for Worlds by myself... any ideas besides making bows?
I save my recycles (soda cans and plastic water bottles) for my daughter. She returns them and keeps the cash. You could ask your family and friends to save them for you. My daughter gets at least $20 every time she returns them and one time got almost $50.
rather than bows, you could make t shirts to sell at your gym. you can go to a local joannes or craft store and buy blank t shirts/wifebeater tanks, fabric, fabric glue, ribbon, glitter, rhinestones and puffy paint and piece together some fabulous tops. then offer to sell them to the girls/boys at your gym to use for competition t shirts or practice shirts. you could even make bows to match them and sell them in sets.
shirts are usually relatively cheap- maybe 5 dollars a piece if you buy them alone. but you can go to target and buy the packs of undershirts for less.
fabric gets a little pricey if you buy a lot so try to limit how much you have to buy
rhinestones too can be expensive- charge more for the shirt if it's bedazzled
puffy paint is usually a one time buy depending on how many shirts you end making
well anyways, you could probably end up making a pretty little profit off t shirts!
