Valentine Hexagon Art

It's about to get all geometric up in here.

I saw this pin on Pinterest that showed a project using scrapbook paper cut into hexagons.  It was adorable, and could be done for any ol' holiday you can think of.  So I did it for Valentine's Day.

I bought some pretty paper and used the Silhouette to cut out hexagons.  I just love hexagons.

I took some pink foam board (I know, I didn't know it existed either) and sat down in front of the television while I put the hexagons together like a puzzle.  This was actually kind of fun.  Once I had them where I liked them, I used double-sided tape to put them on the board.

I thought this was going to take a billion years.  It didn't.  It took like, 20 minutes.  Twenty minutes of hexagon joy.

I put it into a frame and called it a day.

I link up at these great parties!


  1. Funny, I have that hexie art pinned too. Of course actually getting round to doing something pinned is a big achievement, I rarely do!

  2. I love that all your crafts are done in front of the TV :). This looks lovely!

  3. This makes me wish I still taught middle school math. This would make a great project that all the kids could try with lots of different results.

  4. What a sweet craft! I love the patterns you chose for this design. I'm your newest GFC follower. I'd love for you to visit and maybe even follow me back. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day!

  5. Hello. Love that picture you created. So clever. Found you from the GFC hop. I am a new follower. would love for you to visit my blog.

  6. I love this, and I featured it on my blog today! You can check it out and grab a Featured button here: The Fun In Functional link party

  7. This is so pretty! I love hexagons too - I don't have a silhouette, so I'm on the lookout for a sizzix die or paper punch in the hexagon shape.

  8. Cute craft! So versatile too. Like you said, could be done for any holiday.

  9. New follower and love this idea! I do my cutting with a cricut and am tempted to buy a shilouette. What are your thoughts on the shilouette?

    1. I really love my Silhouette. It took me a bit of trying to figure it all out, but once I did, there was no stopping me! I don't know much about the Cricut so I can't compare them, but I do love my Silhouette!


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
