This is a retired Creative Memories Mini Hexagon Maker (punch), new in box. This company is still producing other shapes of scrapbooking punches, but both sizes of their hexagon punches are retired. This punch is their small size, and makes two sizes of hexagons measuring 3/4" and 1" across the middle from edge to edge. It is in perfect condition and works beautifully. I have taken it out of the box only to test it and to photograph it. It comes with a plastic box in which to store the hexagon shapes.
I am a quilter. I wanted to make a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt which (depending on the size of the quilt) uses thousands of little hexagon-shaped pieces of fabric formed around hexagon-shaped papers that are usually made from card stock or the like. I was looking for a way to cut my hexagon-shaped papers quickly and (more importantly) uniform in size. I read recently where a quilter who made a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt used and recommended a retired hexagon punch made by Creative Memories. So I searched for them online and found one. When I got it home I was very disappointed to find that apparently scrapbookers (and Creative Memories) measure hexagons differently than quilters do. This punch is labeled as making 3/4" and 1" hexagons, but that measurement is only correct if you measure across the middle of the hexagon, from edge to edge. Quilters measure hexagons by the length of one of the six sides. Measuring the hexagons that this punch makes the way quilters measure, it makes hexagons that are 3/8" and 1/2". So, needless to say, I can't use this item for the purpose for which it was purchased. I'm hoping there's a scrapbooker somewhere who would enjoy having this retired, hard-to-find, brand-new hexagon punch.
