Have a crafty and recycled Christmas this year with the Crow Scrapstore Christmas shop.

The Christmas shop is open from now until 12 noon on Friday December 21 for materials to create beautiful cards, gift wrap, gift tags and decorations.

People are invited to visit and be inspired by the coloured card, coloured paper, ribbon, fabric, stickers and decorations. The stock is at bargain prices such as two pence for an A4 sheet of paper and three pence for an A4 sheet of card.

A4 white envelopes are free with any purchase while stocks last.

There is also a good selection of second hand value for money decorations for those who want to reuse and recycle this Christmas. There is tinsel and there are baubles and rolls of wrapping paper.

For those who need inspiration there are ideas about how to give your present wrapping the wow factor and ideas about how to make bows out of scrap paper.

Scrapstore development worker Lauren Dunn said: “Make Christmas special by creating unique gift wrap, tags and cards. We have materials and ideas at the Crow Scrapstore Christmas shop.”

When it comes to posting parcels Crow can help with padded brown envelopes for £1. Brown paper for packing is available by the metre.

The Crow Recycling Scrapstore sells donated waste materials to use for arts and crafts all year round.

To shop at the Scrapstore people must become members which costs £10 per year. People are invited to browse then decide if they want to join and shop.

The Scrap store is at the Crow Recycling base in Orchard House, Sparkbrook Street, Hillfields, Coventry, CV1 5LB. Opening times are Monday to Thursday 9.30am to 3pm and Friday 9.30am to 12.30pm.
