- patterned paper
- craft knife
- hexagon pattern.
- Choose patterned paper with hexagons or do an internet search for a printable hexagon pattern.
Trace hexagon onto back of patterned paper.
Position the compass at about 3/8 inch. Line the ruler up with the edge of the hexagon and trace a line that extends on either side of the hexagon. Do this for all six sides.
Using the craft knife cut the center hexagon out. Use scissors to cut the outer edge of the frame.
Trace the frame onto an alternate patterned paper, cut slightly smaller than traced lines.
Using hot glue or other dimensional adhesive adhere the frame to the second hexagon.
Place this design element anywhere you would normally put a shaped piece of patterned paper. I used these hexagon frames for my Amethyst #5 layout.
