Spiced Up! Treasure Chest

My group, American Ink, has been doing the whole Secret Stampin' Sister thing and it's been fun. This is the gift that I made my secret sister last cycle. I bought the treasure chest at a discount and replaced the ugly material it had been decorated with with our lovely spiced material. The ruffled ribbon is our vanilla satin ribbon...I sewed two pieces together to make it wider and then pulled the thread to ruffle it (this covered the ugly seems). I used a hot glue gun to make sure it would never come apart.

My club members got to make this Shamrock using the Dresden Bigz Die (125597) (I call it the petal die). Tomorrow I'll show how we made it...I was going to do that tonite but the nyquil I took has just kicked in and I'm starting to feel woozy.
