CHARLOTTE, N.C. - There is something extra special about the time and care put into a beautifully wrapped gift.  The anticipation over what is inside is even more special, so this morning we're challenging you to put away the easy bags and tissue paper and try something a little different.

Craft Master Donna from Donna Downey Studios joins us on this delightful afternoon to give us some good tips on making someone so enthralled with your packaging.

Tip 1:  It’s ok to just have plain brown wrapping as your base because there are so many different ways you can go with it.

Tip 2:  Try to create an organic look by just going our into your yard and getting some pine cones and deep green twigs to use as the décor.

Tip 3:  Make your own spray paint by adding water to a little bit of acrylic paint in a spray bottle.  Spray it over a stencil to create beautiful snowflakes.
