Can you Honeycomb?


When it comes to a WOW product, I can’t think of a better bang-for-your-buck than the Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF – you don’t think I’m typing all that every time now, do you??).  For just $7.95 – well, plus the cost of a Big Shot, but you needed that anyway – you can take any project from Ho, Hum to Whoo Hoo! in a matter of moments!  The Honeycomb TIEF from the Spring catalog is one of my current favorites, and the Very Good News is that we will see it in the 2013-2014 catalog as well.

There is a trick, my dears.

Run your DSP through the Honeycomb TIEF.  Then take your paper snips and go zigety zagety down the line of combs, in that little trough.  You’ll end up with a row of hexagons with very little effort.  Now snip off what you need and whoop-dee-doo you are done!  What’s more, those hexagons just scoot right into their spots on the  honeycomb panel.  No fuss, no muss.
