i have been seeing alot of very nice LO's using honeycomb cutouts. can anyone tell me if they are made from a punch? if so who makes and where to get. do they sell as diecuts ready to go?
i am thinking maybe cut out on the cricut machine. thanks in advance for you comments.

Spellbinders has a new set of hexagons coming out, and I believe Lifestyle Crafts aka Quickutz has a set as well.

I have a honeycomb .svg file you could use if you have a cutting machine. It's free on my blog.

I have a punch I got years ago from Creative Memories, don't keep to current with their products so not sure if they still carry it. If they don't I would bet you could find it on E-bay. There are two different sizes.

Creative Memories used to make one. I didn't see any on their website, but I found a bunch on eBay if you search Creative Memories Hexagon Punch.

They're pretty much everywhere right now. Papertrey Ink has a die that cuts out a lot in one pass - you can make a quick background with it. MFT has them as well.

If you happen to have a Cricut, Garden Soup has all kinds of them.

And if you don't have a Cricut, Creative Memories does make a hexagon punch (1.5 inch hexagons).

The Cricut "Cars" cartridge has a stop sign that could be used as a honeycomb in a pinch.

I'm really glad you asked this question actually as I thought so many lo's were so cute and didn't realize that my george cricut cart I made did have this shape but I made myself go look and it does have that shape. So Now I can can make lo's with that shape too when the mood strikes me.
