I stumbled on a blog post about using a hexagon punch to make the templates out of insert cards in magazines. I checked Jo-Ann's and Michaels and they both have it - just not willing to pay the price they want for them. So I went to Geta Gama's blog and found templates for my next hexie project.
I looked through a couple of magazines and pulled out those insert cards - they're just the right thickness for hexagon pieces. I printed a page from Geta's free pages and cut out a template and then used it to cut one from thin teflon. I got five hexagon pieces from one card! I love recycling. Now whenever I go through a magazine I'll be saving those cards to make more hexies. Maybe when that punch is 50% off and I have a 15-20% off total purchase coupon, I'll buy one.
What have you been up to? Would love to see your eye candy - hexie or otherwise, new, old or in dreaming stage. Linky below. Ends Monday, midnight.
