I found this awesome tutorial to make this criss-cross card holder that I just had to try! Here's a better look at the box:

Of course, I handmade two different styles of cards to go inside the gift box. I went for a more antique feel and this is what I came up with:

Here are some close ups of the cards:

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
To make the box, please follow this amazing tutorial. Of course, use the Frosty Blanket Paper Collection by Heartfelt Creations pattern papers and ink all the edges for a finished look. To embellish your criss-cross box, die cut a heart from the Timeless Amour Die set in white and red. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the red heart and adhere to the box right in the center. Add the white heart border. Stamp and die cut two poinsettia flowers. Fold in half and layer together. Add three dew drops in the center and stickles around the edges. Stamp and die cut two leaves. Layer the leaves and flower on the bottom left corner of the box. Stamp and fuzzy cut a flourish from the Holiday Haven PreCut Set and add to cluster.
For the cards, stamp the background images from the Festive Yuletide Doorway PreCut Set and Noel Collage PreCut Set on a 4.25”x5.5” cream colored cardstock using brown archival ink. Ink the edges and random spots on the cards with Vintage Photo distress ink and run images through the Distress-it-all tool to distress the edges. Machine stitch all around the edges and adhere on a brown colored 4.25”x5.5” card base each. Cut a V on white ribbon and add over the left side of the card. Stamp, emboss and die cut the corresponding sentiment on red pattern paper. Pop dot and place over the white ribbon as shown.
