So, let’s break down some costs of needed materials and also figure out how to package it all together.
Of course, everything depends on the type of kit you are looking to sell. Some craft projects are incredibly simple while other complex projects might require more expensive materials. So, if you do want to package an intricate project, you may want to adjust your price on the product accordingly.
