In my previous post, I explained how to create an anniversary gif box template in Photoshop CS5.
In this tutorial, I’ll explain how to make your own custom birthday giftbox using Adobe Illustrator.
First, download Adobe Illustrators Creative Cloud.
I recommend the Adobe Creative Cloud Premium package for this tutorial.
Next, open the file in Illustrator and make a new template.
Open the template in Adobe Illustration and make sure it has a background of black and white, and you have a blank canvas.
Now, open Photoshop CS6 and create a new project.
Open Illustrator in your favorite program, and add a new layer to the right side of your canvas.
Now, create a rectangle around your gif box and add the following code:Then, open Adobe Illustrations in your other program, open an existing project, and save your new template to the project.
The next step is to open your custom gif box.
Go to File > New > New New Template… to create a custom gif template.
You can now add any text or images you want in the template.
When you’ve finished, save your template to your project.
Now open Illustrator again, and make the following changes:Finally, open your project and select your custom giftbox from the drop-down menu.
You can now select the gif box from the menu.
Congratulations, you’re ready to make a custom birthday gif box!
