Gingham Ribbons in DIP
Creating A Gingham Ribbon in DIP
For DIP but can easily be adapted to other programs.
1. Draw a thin rectangle, fill with color. Remove the outline.
2. Use CTRL-D to duplicated it over and over. Align and distribute
You need enough to make a square.
3. Group them
4. Adjust the transparency - I think I did about 40
5. Duplicate them and rotate for the other stripes. Align so that
squares of lines are centered on each other.
1. Do a rectangle in whatever color you want the ribbon to be
(I did black).
Make sure you remove the outline.
2. Insert the gingham tile. You may have to do some adjusting
to make it
work. Repeat over and over for as much as you want.
3. Do a thick rectangle for the edge of the ribbon. Make it whatever
you want. Apply the filter "plastic wrap" and adjust
the highlight strength
4. Duplicate and put on the other edge.
5. Group ribbon, gingham, and hems together.
6. Apply filter "burlap" Advanced options - T-90 B-25
7. Use the distort "wave 1" set to 4
8. If you want to fray the edges use "trim" trim by
hand and just make it
really jagged. Or you can have a clean pointy edge by using trim
and just make a straight line.
