New script – Bow #20

Bow script for PaintShop ProA simple bow might be all you need for your project, but how do you find the correct one? Using a ready-made bow and colorizing it might work but might also be a lot of work.

This script will use any straight ribbon and cut random pieces from it to create the bow. This means that even using the same starting ribbon, you will have different results.

In the center, you can let the script use the ribbon for the knot or choose a solid color for a contrasting effect.

Bows in png formatFor a sample, I created three straight polkadot ribbons with holiday colors and ran the script to generate three matching bows. The straight ribbons are also included in the zip file so you can use them separately.

New script – Bow #19

Bow script for PaintShop ProUsing bows and knots can be quite versatile as long as you have variety. This is the 19th type of bow in the store (and we have knots too) so using your own straight ribbon, you will have the option to create some matching bows. The script uses a random location on the ribbon so if you run the script multiple times on a patterned ribbon, you will get different results.

If you don't have a straight ribbon to use, the script can generate one for you with your choice of color, gradient or pattern.

Little bows in colors in PNG formatAs a sampler, I created six little bows using ribbons from Janet Kemp. I layered a grosgrain ribbon with lace and flattened both. Then, I ran the script. I then ran the script on the grosgrain ribbon alone (without the lace), and since the layers were not merged, I copied and pasted the knot part only to replace the one on the "lacy" bow. It is a little more work but it shows how versatile this script can be with unmerged layers.

New script – Bow #18

Script for PaintShop Pro to create triple bowBows come in so many shapes and sizes. In your stash, you will never have too many bows! This is another one in our series of bows that you can create for your own projects.

The script will use the open image if you have a straight ribbon available, but if not, it will create a new organza ribbon in the color (or gradient) of your choice before creating the bow. You can then keep that ribbon to use in other projects or for other scripts.

Easter color triple bows in png formatFor a sample, I created three organza ribbons and three bows with them. I also combined the individual loops from each bow, to make a three-color bow. That is something you can also do with the bows generated from this script since all the layers are left unmerged so you can replace or move them.

New script – Ribbon Factory C

Ribbon factory script for PaintShop ProIt is always fun to have a variety of ribbons to accompany our project but using ready-made ones, might not always match. Adjusting the color is possible but it is tedious. And if you are talking about multicolored ribbons, then it is a full-blown headache.

This script is the third in the Ribbon Factory series. It will create multicolored ribbons using at least 3 colors from your palette and will generate some of the 6 different patterns. Create up to 20 ribbons in one single run of the script. Keep the ones you like, discard the others.

New script – Wrapped Ribbon 1

Wrapped Ribbon script for PaintShop ProYou might want to wrap your own ribbon around your own frame or picture, but how do you do that? This is when you need this script. It will use any straight ribbon you want (opaque, patterned, lace, directional) and the script will arrange the pieces in a way that will look like it is wrapping around something.

Once the script is done, all the layers are left unmerged but grouped so you can tweak them but also copy and paste the whole arrangement to your project and trim the edges to fit your frame or photo.

Wrapped Ribbon laceAs a sampler, I am offering you this lace ribbon. I didn't include the shadows so you can add your own, as needed. The whole arrangement is a little bit wider than 2600 pixels so you can resize it to what you need and trim the edges if necessary.

New script – Ribbon Flower

Ribbon flower script for PaintShop ProThere are multiple flowers made of ribbon that you can get online. Most of them are likely real ribbon flowers that were photographed and extracted. However, sometimes, you might want to have a flower that perfectly matches a ribbon you already have. How can you get such a flower?

This script will use your own straight ribbons and will turn them into a ribbon flower. You can use a single ribbon for all the petals, but you also have the option to use multiple ribbons to make different rows of petals.

New script – Ribbon Butterflies

Ribbon Butterflies script for PaintShop ProIf you are a little bored with regular bows to embellish your projects, here is something a bit different: butterflies. Although they are similar to a bow, they have that symmetry and the additional beaded body to turn them to something original.

You can use any straight ribbon, whether it is opaque or translucent, with straight edges or scalloped. If you use a smaller ribbon, the result will be a smaller butterfly. The maximum size it will make is a 900-pixels butterfly. If your ribbon is thicker than 400 pixels, the script will resize it to 400 and work from there.

New script – Bow #16

Bow script for PaintShop ProWe never have too many bows in our stash because it is important to have some variety. Whether you are a scrapbooker or a designer, this is another tool that will allow you to get a new bow from any other straight ribbon.

You can use an opaque ribbon, but also a lacy one or translucent one.

New Script – Woven Ribbons Frame

Woven Ribbons Frame script for PaintShop ProWeaving ribbons can be a tedious task, so if you want to create a frame with woven ribbons, it also means four times as many weaving to do. That can take a long time. And if you are using 4 ribbons, it also multiplies the steps.

This script will do all the cutting, copying, pasting, rotating, shading and weaving of 2, 3 or 4 ribbons to create a frame of the size you will decide, in just a few seconds. Then, you'll have more time to adjust the photo you want to showcase or the story you want to tell.

New script – Zigzag Ribbon

zigzag folded ribbon script for PaintShop ProUsing a straight ribbon and turning it into a zigzag with multiple folds can be a fun way to use the same ribbon in different ways on the same layout or to create consistency between several layouts in a project.

This script will take care of all the tedious tasks of measuring, cutting, rotating and aligning all the pieces to create a continuous zigzag ribbon element.

zigzag ribbons in png formatAs a sampler, I started with a very long ribbon (5000 pixels) that I painted with a gradient. I thought it would be fun to see the gradient through the various folds. I repeated the effect with a different gradient, so you end up with two zigzag, but also the matching straight ribbons so you can use them elsewhere on your project.
