printable // happy hexagon EPP templates
If you've been around here for more than a post or two, you might have noticed that I have a thing for English paper piecing. Hexagons are a favorite, and I don't see that going away any time soon.
When I'm making projects, I use 1-inch hexagons the most and having a common size means I can make the individual hexies and keep the around...then use them when needed. It also helps that I have a Fiskars punch that I can use to easily cut out the templates.
But then this happened.
I was recycling some card stock (this is a pentagon from my 50 States Stitching Club) and one of the templates happened to have this. I was immediately smitten by the happy face peeking out at me!
Since then, I've been thinking about how I needed some happy hexagons. When I spotted an easy hexagon cutting guide, I knew that the smiling shapes were going to happen and I was going to share them with you.

To use these, print them on card stock and grab your scissors.
Cut them into three strips, then cut the hexagons straight across, and finally trim off the angles pieces. No awkward angles to cut...just easy straight cuts.
When you form your hexagons, they'll smile at you as you work! How do you not love that?
I'll still be using my hexagon punch for bulk templates, but I'll be mixing these in for fun surprise bits of personality. After all...hexies are better with faces!
