It’s time again for another professional grade (don’t know if you could hear the sarcasm there) video tutorial by your’s truly! If you’ve ever wanted to create die cut designs that include pop-out sections or tear offs, then you’ll definitely want to check this one out. Learn how to create cut files with perforations using a few simple tools in Adobe Illustrator.
The main tools you will be using:
The Rectangle & Ellipses Tools
Dashed Line Tool
This tutorial has actually been requested multiple times by viewers, so I thought it would be a fun topic to hit. You could use this trick to make simple ticket stubs or pop-out pieces like I did in the video, but there’s plenty of other ways to implement this skill too! You could create posters with tear-off tabs, or even get super creative by making something like a paper doll/outfit set.
Enjoy learning how to create cut files with perforations! I hope you found the information useful, and are ready to give it a go for yourself. And let me know if there is anything you’ve been dying to learn how to do in Adobe Illustrator or Cricut Design Space!
