3. Have a unique style that you can help others translate into their own projects.

4. Be familiar with the newest products, and have a repertoire of the newest and best techniques across multiple art genres.

5. Prepare your classes with a store sample, full color photo to post the class on The Crafty Scrapper website and FB, a supply list for The Crafty Scrapper to order, a class description, class cost, dates to teach, printed full color instructions, and fully assembled kits.

6. Come to class prepared to upsell store products, and help customers develop new skills.

7. Be prepared to teach one make and take a month at The Crafty Scrapper.
