Picnic Basket full of Cards!

I was looking around at Two Peas when I came across this wonderful tutorial from here on min lille BLOGG

I worked with the measurements and came out with this.  I decorated it with my first quilled flowers, and leaves from the wedding supply section at Michael's.  I punched the butterfly, and added pearls to the body.  The box opens on both sides and closure is by magnets.
I used kraft cardstock from The Paper Company, but I don't know where the checked paper came from.
Sorry, it is from my stash!
Every box needs something to put in it, so I got out my Gypsy and used my  Just Because Cards Cartridge and came up with a couple to put in the box.  These above are blank inside...The "RAD" card also used some adhesive paper ribbon from K and Company.
Inside, the carrot card says "Thanks a bunch" and the pig card says "Hogs and Kisses," with more adhesive ribbon.
All of the cardstock used for the cards was leftovers from my stash!
Thanks for looking!  If you are interested, let me know and I will post the dimensions for this project!
Have a wonderful, crafty day!

I'd love to see specific dimensions in a non-metric format. I could convert them myself, but if you've already done it I could save some time! :)
