This week's FREE shape includes 3 lace borders. I've used one of them here to create paper lace ribbon for gift wrapping...
When working with these lace borders, the weld tool will be your best friend. Here's how I created the border in the photo above...
First, I opened the shape and with the shape selected I clicked ungroup down at the bottom left of my screen and deleted the bottom two borders.
Then, I duplicated the remaining shape and overlapped the edges slightly.
Then, I opened the modify window and with both shapes selected clicked weld.
Next, so that the scallop border was on both the top and bottom, I selected the shape, opened the replicate window and selected mirror below.
Then, I overlapped those two shapes slightly and selected weld in the modify window.
You can make the border shape as long as you want by duplicating it and welding the ends. So, if you wanted to make a vinyl lace border for the wall in a nursery or little girls bedroom, totally do-able! Just keep welding.
Using the same welding technique, you can also add these borders and others in the online store to the bottom of tags, or cards.
Hope you have a great day... and enjoy your new shape!
