There is a stroke (see the red one) that has a scissor in the corner. For this example, I added dashes. I believe there once was a stroke or brush like the one I created in this mock-up in Photoshop that had scissors all around. Useful for creating a coupon or something else to indicate the item should be cut out.
Anyone know if it's still in Adobe Illustrator or available as an Adobe download?
The scissor is available in the Zapf Dingbats (and probably other) font.
It is easy to outline it and make it into a brush.
Thanks, but it would sure be easier to find the brush or stroke! 😉
That brush is not so straightforward to create. What you need to make these, is a double approach. You need a dashed line for the dashes and then a scatter brush as a second stroke for the scissors. Your dashed line will have to be fairly ugly and not aligned on the corners for this to work.
In your example it looks like the scissors have been placed manually (they are different on the sides of the rectangle.
Check out the brush in the brushes panel and everything else in the Appearance panel
The option is in the Stroke pallet, under Arrowheads
*break up your stroke. each line you dra will have the scissors.
Not optimal but doable, thanks 😊
I think you can use the "Pattern Brush" to create what you want -- Draw a linw segment with the siccsors arrowhead. Select that line -- now create a New Brush using "Pattern Brush". I couldn't get to be perfect, but with a bit of playing around, you might get what you are looking for.
1. Draw a line with the arrowhead:
2. Create New Brush (Pattern Brush) with the line you just created
3. These are the options I used.
4. This was the result I got
I think using the Arrow heads is a very good solution!
