I don't have my camera cord with me today but just to give you an idea, its a Bella stamp with Stickles and colored in (stamped on white c/s). B/G is black c/s and then THAT is on a glitter c/s. I also added some velvet ribbon and bling to the "card". LOTS of ribbon on the holder and a ball chain to attach it to the suitcase.
Those sound so cute! What many people do is to double the cost of what it is to make the item. So if the tags cost you $2 to make, charge $4. I try to follow this rule when I can, but if I get a deal on something I still charge what I would have if I paid full price. Don't forget to include stickles and ribbon etc. when calculating your price or you can come out behind. I have done that before. Sometimes you can charge more than double. It depends on your customers. Good luck! I would love to see them!
