Unusual Gift Boxes & Bags

Pinch Close Gift Box

Hi everyone, today I have another Hobbybase Club project.

These Pinch Close gift boxes are quick and easy to make, perfect for holding a nice bar of soap or a small box of perfume.

There were 10 sheets of 6 x 6 paper in the February kit and I used the last 4 to make these gift boxes.

Because these papers are from the same paper pack all the colours match, so although I’ve mixed the prints it still all works well together.

To make these you will need…

2 pieces of 6 x 6 paper.

Score along one side at 1.1/2 & 4.1/2

Score along the other side at 1/4″ & 1.3/4

Ribbon, die cuts & sentiment of your choice.

As mentioned everything I used is from the February kit, however, you can still purchase some items separately, and if you enter code MIXEDUP at checkout you will receive a further 10% off.

Birdcage die.


Butterfly die.


Perfectly Pink, Dovecraft papers…72 sheets for 3.50!!


Check out my full tutorial below to see how I made them.

I love the detail on these boxes and the partial heat embossing of the birds in the cage.

  1. Sam. I love everything you have mades with Hobbybase’s February Kit. You are so creative and what makes it even better is that you have used up quite a lot of the resources eg ribbon, patterned paper. Thank you for sharing how you got the birds to be embossed but not the bird cage. :O)

  2. Hi Sam

    Thank you for sending me this email with the link to your blog post – Pinch Close Gift Box

    I watched your video tutorial on You Tube and read through your blog post. I wrote a comment on both too. I think all your designs using the February kit from Hobbybase are great and also in the fact that you have used up resources too.

    Thank you for supporting us crafters and sharing your skills with us too.

    Till your next email
