I love English Paper Piecing, particularly the process of hand sewing the shapes together to create one of kind patterns that can be used in so many ways. I have been buying the pre-cut hexagon shapes to use in my English Paper Piecing projects and then reusing them several times until they became too crumpled. When I was asked if I wanted to road test the new Fiskars Easy Squeeze Hexagon punches, I jumped at the opportunity. Now I can cut hexagons as needed using the Fiskars Each Squeeze Hexagon range of punches.
Available in three sizes (extra-large, large, and medium) so you can cut the size that best suits your project. The Extra Large punch has sides that are one inch in length; the large has 3/4 inch sides; and the medium has 1/2 inch sides. Fiskars have designed their punches so that they cut cleanly and with minimal force required. I have been busy cutting out lots of hexagons today from a scraps of lightweight card and they were super easy to cut. The punch has a comfortable ergonomic handle that is easy to use. I won’t need to reuse the hexagons papers now that they are so quick and easy to punch from paper offcuts I have at home. I will be able to recycle the junk mail to use in my hexagon papers. The punches have been given an “ease of use” certification from the Arthritis Foundation (USA).
