New script – Bow #11

Bow made from straight ribbon - script for Paintshop ProWho can say they have enough bows in their digital stash? Nobody!

When looking for bows to use in your projects, are you stuck with the same design, with the same polkadots or the same stripes? And then, having other ribbon elements that are just not matching?

This script will take any straight ribbon and tie it in a simple bow. You can use any kind of ribbon, opaque or translucent, plain or patterned, striped or polkadot, etc.

And for a unique touch, the loose ends will be randomly cut so you won't get two identical bows, even if you start with the same ribbon.

cass-Bow11-samplesThis coming weekend, it will be July 1st (Canada Day) and July 4th (Independance Day) so i created two basic ribbons with the blue white and red colors and one with red and white. Then, i ran the script for each one. I also used the Knot#7 script to create the additional knot.

Furthermore, i am including the basic ribbons too, so you can use them as is, or with other scripts to create more knots and bows.

New script – Bow #9

cass-Bow9Do you want to have a bow from your favorite ribbon but that ribbon is only straight? You can do it manually, but it is long and tedious.

This script will work in any version of Paintshop Pro, and will turn any straight ribbon into a layered bow that you can then use in any project, whether it is digital scrapbooking, card-making, or others.

The end result is a layered bow so you can tweak the layers or insert a decorative element in the knot if you want.

And it will not damage the original straight ribbon either so you can still use both in your project.

You can get this script in the store: Bow #9.

If you are to use that script, can you think of something you could insert in the knot? Since it will be left unmerged, that is one great way you can customize the bow. Share your idea in the comments below and i will announce the winner in the newsletter, next week. Not registered yet? Not a problem: register here.

cass-Bow9-Fall01As a sample of this, i created a bow from a simple straight ribbon. It was colorized for fall colors, which is the time of the year in the northern hemisphere.

Not only you get a bow in psd format with the knot on a separate layer, but you also get the straight ribbon so you can create a matching detail. You can attach the bow to the ribbon, in the middle (which shrinking the ribbon), to pretend the bow is part of it.
