Trending Shapes Hexagons

When you look through recent scrapbook designs, there are the usual shapes that you see: circles, squares, triangles, etc. But recently, there is a new geometric shape that is taking the paper crafting world by storm: hexagons. 

Using the hexagon is easy when you have several different paper patterns and you want to keep it consistent throughout the design. A hexagon will add that consistency, with a little flair.  Using the Fiskars Hexagon Squeeze Punches, you can make this an easy trend to incorporate into all your crafting projects.

Here is how to make an easy embellishment. If you want to step up your use of any shape design, including the hexagon, punch several hexagon shapes from the same patterned paper. Fold each punched shape in half. Glue each end of the folded hexagon shapes to each other. This creates a ‘honeycomb’ style embellishment that you could add to any project!
