Digital Scrapbooking Day Tutorial

Learn how to make it look like a binder clip is holding ribbons using the eraser tool in Adobe Photoshop.

Here is an image of your end result in a layout:

First open a new file by clicking FILE and then NEW. I usually make my new file
12x12 inches at 300ppi. Open your elements and drag each one onto the 12x12 file
using the MOVE TOOL. Each element will end up in its own layer.
You can see this in your Layers Palette. If you can't see your Layers Palette,
go to the top menu bar and click on WINDOW then click LAYERS and it will show up.
Be sure the ribbon layer is BELOW the binder clip layer.

Second, move the ribbon underneath the binderclip

Third, select the ERASER tool

Finally, carefully start erasing the ribbon layer until
you can't see any of the edges sticking out around the binder clip.

Ta Da! You're finished! Add the rest of your elements, papers and photos for a great looking layout!
