How To Use: Hexagon Punch for Note Cards

Would you like to know how to use a hexagon punch for Note Cards like this? It’s soooooo easy!

This was easy enough, we each made three of them during the Coffee + a Card class at Starbucks! The key to making them was stacking this retired Designer Series Paper and punching through two layers at the same time. Everyone received a couple of 6″x6″ sheets.

  1. We started with a white panel smaller than the size of the Note Cards, parked it in the Stamparatus, and stamped this fun sentiment from a set I had made by Bossy Joscie. Stamp the sentiment in Fresh Freesia ink and punch out with the hexagon punch (retired).
  2. Punch through two layers of DSP at a time, and punch just three times to complete one Note Card.
  3. From a scrap of Basic White card stock, punch another hexagon and run that through the embossing folder to be just a textured piece.
  4. See the funny shape? After applying all the punched pieces around the hole in the panel, trim everything off where it hangs off the panel, and be sure to use Paper Snips! They’re sharp and small enough to get in there closely.
  5. Adhere the panel to the front of the Note Card with glue, instead of Dimensionals. Seriously, I do use glue sometimes!
  6. Use a single Dimensional in the center of the punched sentiment, and place over your punched hole.

I used Stripes and Splatters embossing folder duo, two for the price of one and so fun to have a distressed embosser! They are considered 3D, so you’ll want to run them through your old Big Shot with just the main platform and the now retired blue cutting plate. Good news: the new specialty plate, number 4, works the same way!

We used the Hand Penned stamp set to decorate the envelope and the inside of the Note Cards, all with Fresh Freesia ink pad.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER: These cuties are still mailed with a single postage stamp. They’re one of the smallest things you can mail without extra postage or different “packaging”.
