If you ever braided ribbons in the past, you know that they could make for a nice long element that can then be used in various shapes. This is the same that you can do with PaintShop Pro and this set of picture tubes.
The set includes 10 colors plus a grey one that you can colorize if the base colors are not what you need.
Draw with your cursor or use the VectorTube script to place them perfectly along a path.

In order to win this script, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us if you ever braided ribbons before (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!) The winner will be announced in the newsletter, next week. Not a subscriber yet? Not a problem. You can register here and it is free (and you only get one email per week).
As a sampler, I just made a basic oval shape and using the VectorTube script, added some green braided ribbon. I added a ribbon bow (which is from Digitalscrapbook.com) and colorized it to match the ribbons (it was light blue initially).
