Default hexagon punch?

Has anyone ever seen one? If so, what brand and where?

Thanks,
Lisa

I've never seen a hexagon punch, but I have seen nesting hexagon dies by Quickutz. There are 15 dies in the set ranging in size from .5" to 5.7". It costs about $23.

There is also a Nestability hexagon set. Its an older set and might be a little harder to find.

Here's one site that has the QuicKutz dies: Nesting Hexagon - Cookie Cutter Dies

I don't know anything about the company, though.

Quickutz are made by Lifestyle Crafts. I have a couple of sets of Lifestyle Crafts dies and like them because they are able to cut thicker materials than a lot of other steel dies. The only thing is that you need to make sure you don't over-shim your sandwich, otherwise the die will get so deeply embedded into your cutting plate, that you'll need to pry it out.

There are a couple of those CM hexagon punches for sale on Ebay. Won't be cheap though.

Interesting coming across the inquiry. I was with a friend yesterday and she has been looking for a hexagon punch for quite awhile. Will let her know about this discussion!

I am torn between getting the MFT hexagon border and the quickkutz hexagon die. The border die might be easier to do multiples...but it might be nice to have them as nested shapes...decisions decisions!

have you looked at sizzix? They use to have one (a die) that would cut multiple ones for quilting.

I realized that my CM punches were still in a box in the garage where I put my stuff to sell. I went and rescued them from their exile!

According to my new Papercrafts magazine, hexagons are "in" this year so you may see some new options soon.

Default Hexagon Shape

Papertrey Ink will have a die cut and stamp set in their June 15th offering. Sample shown on their blog.

It says it's the IN thing to have.

I am looking forward to this as well...I am hoping for a few different sizes from the same company so we can stack the shapes together.

Come to think of it I've never, ever seen one in my local stores. Same with an egg shape punch. I've looked for over 2 years for one and nothing. So I've made do with punching an oval then rounding off one end with a circle punch.

Found this thread as a result of a search for hexagon punches. Hoping SU will come up with one that will match their embossing folder. Until then, I do see that Epiphany Crafts has a hex punch that will match their hex clear plastic things. Fingers crossed for the new catalog in a month!

Fiskars has hexagon punches. They're at JoAnn's -- rolling them out slowly. Only 1 of my JoAnn's has them (and they're sold out now) There are some CM ones on Ebay. Not sure about Etsy.

SU has a new one in the new catty, but it's a bit bigger than I had hoped....

Default hexagon punch

I had a CM hexagon punch, never used so I sold it!! UGH!! And of course everything is hexagon now!! I purchased 2 of them at Joanns. They are the squeeze type punches. I bought the medium & large size. (I knew that if I bought one or the other, I would end up needing the one I didn't buy, so I bought both!! ) They are very easy to use!

Have you heard that Creative Memories is filing for bankruptcy? Very sad and it makes one wonder what company will be next?

I mentioned that a littler earlier. The trouble is, it appears to be bigger than what I want. I want one that will punch a hexagon that will fit inside the hexagon shape on SU's honeycomb embossing folder, but the one they have in the new cattly looks larger than the 1" punch...

It might look larger than the embossing folder, because they enlarge the details in the sneak peek pdf.'s. I can't imagine that the hexagon punch would be bigger than the hexagon on the embossing folder, but I could be wrong.

I did see where Mary Fish had a one minute to wow video tutorial where she embossed the cs using the hexagon folder then cut out the hexagon with the paper snips and then layered it on a card that had been run through the hexagon embossing folder.

I don't think I'll bother getting the hexagon punch; even though I'm not surprised they are introducing the punch in the new catty.

I didn't think they would make it bigger either and I know the pictures are larger than actual size, but I was looking at the 1" punch on the same page and the hexagon looked bigger than that. I will be thrilled if it is just the right size for the folder.....that's exactly what I want. I wonder if there is anywhere we could find it's measurements?

Default Ask a Demo

I wouldn't be surprised if a demo pre-ordered the hexagon punch and could tell you what the actual dimension of the punched cardstock is. I'd be wondering too if the punched cardstock would fit perfectly into the embossed hexagon....

then I wouldn't feel the need to purchase the punch, KWIM?
