TUTORIAL BY PSCS5; How to make boxes around a text
1. Create your text. I used Courier New as my font for this tutorial.
2. Select the Rectangle Tool. Make sure that your foreground color is set to white:
3. Now using your text as a guide, make a box that covers the text. Your box should be under the text. Once you have that done, it should look something like this:
4. I personally like to add Satin to the box, so that it could have like a vintage touch to it:
These are my settings:
5. With the satin added:
6. To rotate your text and box, select the move tool and rotate.
7. To get the more edgy look like box number 3 that says “a text” select the polygon lasso tool:
8. Then start making random lines around the text. Connect the one end to another so that you get moving lines around your text like this:
9. Make a new layer and select the bucket tool. Make sure that this layer is underneath your text and that your foreground color is white. Take the bucket tool and click inside the area of the moving text so that it can be filled in with white:
10. If you want to add the satin, follow step 4.
And that’s really all there’s to it. You don’t need to make a new text for a new word. Just write your whole text out, ex: “How to make” and then just do the boxes around it. Hope this helped.
