10 Things Hexagons with a Bonus

 It's 10 Things Tuesday here at Practical Scrappers. Today we put hexagons on display. Scroll through this post and see where our designers found room to add hexagons to their projects. You are guaranteed to find a few surprises.
1.Use up your scraps.
Practical Scrapper Linda used hexagons on the background of her layout. She cut them from scrap pieces of paper using a die from Sizzix.
2. Use modeling paste.
Practical Scrapper Julie used some modeling paste with a mask from The Crafters Workshop to add some hexagon shapes to her layout.
3. Modeling paste take 2: add mist.
Practical Scrapper Lee-Anne used a stencil, modeling paste and some Heidi Swapp Color Shine Mists to her hexagons on the corrugated paper background.
4. Use the negative.
Practical Scrapper Charity cut out a printed design with her craft knife and then flipped the cardstock over to add layers to her layout.
5.Use a template to position embellishments.
Practical Scrapper Kelly Jean used a Jillibean Soup die cut placemat as a spray mist template for her layout.
6.Use wood veneers.
Practical Scrapper Lisa used Studio Calico wooden hexagons both in the natural wood form and painted black.
7. Use multiple sizes.
Practical Scrapper Lanette used different size hexagons as accents on her geometric layout.
8. Use paper towel. (No for real!!!)
Practical Scrapper Karen noticed that the paper towels had a hexagon embossed design and cut them out to embellish her simple card.
9.Frame a photo.
Practical Scrapper Claude used Studio Calico hexagon stickers to partially frame her picture.
10.Make a flower.
Practical Scrapper Leslii used hexagons to create a fun flower accent for her card as well as a hexagon embossing plate for her background.
Start with a square...
Guest Designer Stephanie folded and stitched to make this sweet card from paper scraps.
Do you have a hexagon idea we've neglected to mention? I know I'd love to hear what it is. Post a photo of your project to the Practical Scrappers Facebook Page.
