Card Box for 20 cards - a unique Christmas gift

Last year I hand made all my Christmas presents and this year I hope to do the same.  Today I started making some gifts.  One of the gifts I made was a card box that will hold 20 all occasion cards.  I think the box and the cards will make a wonderful gift for some of my relatives.
I got the pattern for the box from another demonstrator with the promise that I would not share the dimensions etc. with anyone else.  So, I'm sorry, but the only thing I can tell you is that it takes one 12 by 12 piece of card stock.

This is the front view.  It is made using a 12 by 12 piece of Marina Mist card stock and decorated with Gingham Garden designer paper.  The ribbon is 1 1/4" striped Marina Mist grosgrain ribbon (retired) which is held in place with a piece of Midnight Muse tab punchie (the tab punch is retired as well) and a clear rhinestone brad.
The focal decoration is a red rose made with the Blossom punch.  The green leaves were made using the Big Shot and the little leaves die.  Both are adhered to a Midnight Muse circle die cut using the Circles Framelit





Here is the top view showing the cards inside.  I picked a selection of cards for many occasions - birthday, anniversary, sympathy, graduation, etc from my "stash". 
Now to make a couple more.

Love how your box turned out Maria (excellent job on attaching the ribbon)!! I'm glad you put the pattern to use for gifts. And you can use the pattern for a class as it is so easy, peasy to put together!

It's really beautiful. I've made on sort of like it but didn't hold that many cards. It makes me even more grateful to demos who share their creations.
