crafts and card projects and recording 'How To' video guides, as well as
writing step by step breakdowns, which will be hosted online at
Woolworths.co.uk. The videos are also available on Woolworth's You Tube page.

The first video to be added to the site features Stephanie showing
customers how to make a home-made Valentine's Day card. The 'How To'
section of the site features a list of all the tools that are needed to
complete the project, complete with links to the products on the Woolworths
