A student told me about these Fiskars hole punches. Now that I have tried them I can tell you how they work.
All sizes squeeze easily on card stock if you cut 1 sheet of paper at a time. You are can recycle paper (like heavier magazine inserts) or use pristine sheets.
- Medium = 1/2″ on each side
- Large = 3/4″ on each side
- X-Large = 1″ on each side
The X-Large grip is too big for my hands so I’ll ask Steve to do those for me if/when I need them.
The same student also told me that if you punch a hole in the center of each paper it’s easier to remove them with a toothpick or awl which makes sense. I couldn’t find my normal hole punch so I used the one that cuts 1/8″ holes, 1/4″ would probably be better.
Honestly, I have very little spare time for cutting hexies so I won’t use these often. But I’m happy to have them in my drawer, just in case :-).
FYI: I couldn’t find them from a quilt supplier so I looked on Amazon.
Try JoAnne’s or Hobby Lobby
Yup, I’ll bet they have them too and they have those dandy coupons!
Becky, I have used these punches for a couple of years. You can also find them at Joann Fabrics. My granddaughter loves punching the hexies for me!!
I bought mine at JoAnn’s with a 40 percent off coupon. And they occasionally go on sale for 40 to 50 percent off.
Punch out the hexies in freezer paper. No basting necessary!
Loved your lecture and workshop last week. Thanks for the great advice! Will look for the hexie on my next trip to JoAnn’s.
