How-To > Illustrator > Sparkles

this is one of the easiest things to create using illustrator. it is only two steps!

what you'll be creating

step 1
create a new document, and create a circle shape by using the ellipse shape tool

TIP: make sure it is not stroked! if you leave the stroke on, it will mess up the sparkle

step 2
under effects, go to pucker & bloat.

and match your settings to mine, then click ok!

TIP: You can use any shape! They look really cute when made with stars as well! Just play around with it ♥
