If I am right, I don't think the hexagon punch is available on the preorder...

If you don't see any sneak previews on the internet, it's not a preorder item.

I have the cuttlebug honeycomb embossing folder and the spellbinders hexagon die fits it.

Just an FYI if you don't have to have Stampin' Up.

Personally I'm trying to get rid of as much Stampin' Up stuff as I can.

I think the spellbinders hexagon dies would fit the SU folder too, but I don't want to run one through the Big Shot at a time! A punch would be much more convenient.

I'm not sure about the size of the hexagons in the StampinUp folder, but this may work if the size is right. Sizzix.com - Sizzix Bigz Die - Hexagons, 3/4" Sides

I would consider that kind of die because it cuts six hexagons at a time, but allows you to cut multiple sheets. However, 3/4" is too big for the folder. Measuring the folder itself from square side to square side, I measure them at 5/8". If you measure straight across the honeycomb, it measures 3/4" but the video shows them after she cuts them out and they sure look too big for the folder. But now I am questioning myself on how to actually measure them. If you go from point to point straight across they are 3/4"

UPDATE: I went back to the sizzix link again and they are definately too big. The size is 3/4" sides. If I measure SU's honeycomb sides they are 3/8"....rats.

Thanks muscrat for checking this out. Here is another possibility using PTI's Cover Plate: Hexagon Die. https://www.papertreyink.com/pti-die...e-hexagon-die/

I have emailed Erin who made these wonderful cards using this die and asked her to measure one of the sides. Erin: Moxie Fab Challenge | Hooked on Hexagons

If this die works, it could be the best of both worlds when used with or without SU's embossing folder. Check out these pins on pinterest: http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=pti+hexagon+die

Will post here if I get a response.

Fiskars makes one in 3 different sizes, but I can't find them anywhere. Someone posted on Facebook a couple of days ago that they found them at Joann's, but I don't know where they were located. Our Joann's didn't have them, of course. I need them!

I heard back from Erin and the size of these hexagons is 7/16" -- about 1/16" too large. DRATS!
I may get it anyways. I found this video on YouTube and I love everything you can do with this die.

Thanks for the update. That plate would be perfect if it had been the right size. Maybe it would be easier to find a bigger embossing folder than to find the smaller hexagons! LOL

Is anyone familiar with My Favorite Things and their hexagon dies?

They have two multi punch dies.

1. Hexagons: Die-namics Hexagons
2. Open Hexagon Borders: Die-namics Open Hexagon Borders

You're finding some really cool dies! I just wish all the companies would be consistent in how they show measurements. I have no clue what size .89 is....I know it is less than an inch but how much less?

I'm not sure if this will be helpful but I hope so ...

.89 is slightly larger than 7/8" (that would be 0.875 which would probably be rounded up and stated as 0.8. So, 0.89 is less an 1/8" smaller than a full inch.

Yes, that helps. It's still too big if they are measuring the same way I am...The SU honeycomb hexagons have a side measurement of 3/8" (that's one of the hexagons sides).

I'm glad it helped (at least somewhat). I think the measurements given in the link for the MFT dies are measuring the overall length of the die and the height of each of the two dies for the top one shown in the photo (I interpret the height as being the distance from the top "point" to the bottom "point" of the shape (the distance between north and south if one were to imagine the hexagon is a compass). It'd be very helpful if the measurements included arrows to indicate what is being measured.

I'm wondering if the new SU punch (in the soon-to-be-released catalog) looks good if popped-up inside an embossed hexagon. I wouldn't always want the popped-up look but I could see it being fun for some stuff.

I asked the question over on SCS's My Favorite Things forum - what is the size of their dies. Here is the link. Size of hexagon dies??

If they responds to my thread, will post back here.

That's what I was thinking too when I said I wish they'd all be consistent in how they measure. When I went to the Sizzix link that was posted earlier, it does have the arrows indicate what is being measured. That took all doubt away at my question with that die. Wish they all did that.

Here are the exact measurements I got from Erin regarding PTI's Hexagon Cover Plate Die:

Hi Susan!
Thank you so much for e-mailing me!

The Papertrey Ink Hexagons are from the Hexagon Cover Plate, so you get a lot of little hexagon shapes when you die cut the cover plate!

The length of one side of a hexagon is 7/16". The length from one point across to another point is 3/4", and the length from one flat side across to another flat side is 11/16".

If the Stampin' Up! embossing folder is 3/8" (or 6/16"), then the die cut hexagons from the PTI cover plate will be a little too big.

The hexagon punch isn't one of the items demos can pre order. I just signed up two weeks ago so this is my first catty launch. From looking at the PDF of the catty(mine doesn't arrive till Tuesday) they have the hexagon punch near the one inch square punch and they look similar in size...but thats just looking at a computer not the punch.

My quess is the hexagon punch is the size of the This and That journal and patterned paper.

If you want the hexagon from the embossing folder, if younput a paper shim on top of the folder and run it through your machine it will be very easy to tear it out or snip with scissors.

That was my observation as well, Andrea. I know I could hand cut them, but to cut as many as I want on a card takes a long time. I know, I've done several by hand already! LOL

Jody (texasjodylynn) over in the MFT Forum has responded to my post. Here is her reply (with pictures). Size of hexagon dies??

It looks like the medium open border die will work! The smallest die could probably be used as a layer.

Thanks Susan! Cutting 8 at a time is much better than one at a time! Now...how to get my hands on this since I don't order online! I will have to talk to my LSS. She will order stuff if we ask, but she's just out of the hospital. I will check out MFT's site and see if I can order and send a check...

The sizes of the Dienamics hexagon border set fit the SU and Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folders. There are 3 sizes

Cuttlebug-the smallest hexagon
Stampin' Up-the medium hexagon

The fit is within the ridges of the honeycomb.

I have both folders and the die and tried the hexagon cutouts today.

Thanks, Crafter 4 Life for double checking that MTF's Dienamics hexagon border set will work with both SU's and Cuddlebug's hexagon embossing folders.

I have a hexagon punch from years ago. It is red and white from emaginations I think. Old fashioned kind. Big and bulky
