All about hexagons...


Hexagons first came on the crafting scene about 3 or 4 years ago now and I'm pleased to see that they're here to stay!
I made this card with a 3 piece hexagon die set I got free with Issue 106 of Papercrafter magazine. But, maybe it's time for me to invest in a full nesting die set.
I'm thinking of either the 10 piece Sizzix Framelits Hexagon Die Set or the  Xcut Nesting Dies Hexagonal Set.  I'll probably go for the Sizzix as there are more dies in the set and the largest die is bigger than the Xcut, so I can easily use it to create a hexagonal card blank.
Here are a couple of cards I've picked from Pinterest to showcase the versatility of this geometric shape.
