Hi there, Sweet Shoppers! Lex here with a quick how-to on playing with digital strings and ribbons. You can add more realism and fun to them by “threading” them through various other items on your layout.
2. Zoom in as close as you can. You want to zoom into the place where the string will hang from on the tag.
4. Go to your Eraser tool on your main palette.
5. Highlight/make your string layer the active layer.
You can also use this same “selective erasing” principle when you’re working with ribbons, paper clips and other fasteners where a part of it is “hidden” by the item they are fastened on.
9. Make sure your fastener is above all the other layers you plan on clipping it to.
The benefit of selecting a particular layer (such as the tag layer) is that when you are erasing the parts of fasteners you don’t need, there’s no danger of you accidentally erasing beyond the selected area of the tag layer. You can try this method on many other things: threading strings and ribbons through tags, holes in notepaper, alphas with holes, etc. Go nuts with it! Happy scrapping!
