Hexagon Window Card Tutorial

Filed under: Projects — November 8, 2013 @ 8:47 am

I forgot to post this tutorial from my September class – some tricks to making a hexagon window card.  This technique was inspired by one of the Paper Pumpkin kits by Stampin’ Up!


Here is my favorite of the cards, using the Winter Frost DSP:

And some more alternate ideas and patterns:

And the instructions:

1.  Punch out 7 or more hexagons from Designer Series Paper (here Sweater Weather) and 2 from scrap copy paper.

2.  Lay out the shapes on your card front in a pleasing pattern, making sure that the 2 scrap pieces (that will be your windows) are very close to the edge.

3.  Adhere the shapes including the copy paper – to give you perfect placement of the windows.

4.  Punch out the 2 scraps and trim any that are overhanging.

You can see in the below photo, that I didn’t get the shape quite close enough to the edge, so my window is crooked, since the punch needed to be  held sideways to get into that position.

5.  Adhere your card front to the card and decorate the windows with punched shapes or with stamps.

If desired, make your windows in the actual card base so you can see through to the inside of the card.
