I have had several people ask how I made the box that goes with my tutorial for my Victorian bow. Up till now I have been just e-mailing a brief description. I figured it might be easier for everyone if I just put up a quick tutorial...a "tuttette" if you will..*grin* So, here we go..

1. Open a transparent image 250 by 250. Using the selection tool set to rectangle draw a rectangle near the bottom of your image. Flood fill with white. Leave the selection active (the "marching ants") Now, using Eye Candy version 3 choose "Chrome". We will use the preset "Copper " Don't worry about the color , if you don't want this color you can change it later *smile*.
2. Add a new raster layer. Using selection tool set to rectangle again draw a rectangle that is slightly longer and much narrower than the first one. Flood fill with white and apply the same Eye candy effect.
3. Leave the selection active and apply a drop shadow using the following settings..
4. Go up to "layers", and "merge visible". Now is the time to change the color of your box if you are going to. Go up to "Colors" and choose "colorize". Now using the slider bars you can change the color of you box to whatever you want. Then you can decorate it with your favorite tube and maybe ...a bow ??....LOL.. Hope this "tuttette" helps and I hope you had fun. *smile*
