OWH Midweek Throwdown – Hexagons Take 2

Standard

The Midweek Throwdown this week at Operation Write Home is to make card using Hexagons.

Yesterday’s card was a geometric failure as I was all, “Oooh, I’m measuring and marking and cutting and… whoops, that’s an octagon.”

I discovered that if you have a circle and measure the radius, the size of that is how you mark the edges. The radius fits 6 times around the edges. Then you cut the edges and VOILA, a hexagon has magically appeared. I’m sure the previous makes no sense. In cases like this, Uncle Google is your friend. How to draw a hexagon.

*edited to add this to the Moxie Fab World Happy for Hexagons Challenge because I did geometry and stuff.
