Step 2 Next, click the View tab and enable Smart Guides and Snap to Point. This will allow you to align paths and points with ease. Use the space inside the dashed box as your work area. Using the Selection tool (V), select Shape 1, create a copy and change it to Colour Swatch 2 using the Eyedropper tool (I). Right Click on the edited path and select Transform > Reflect. Then set the orientation to Vertical and angle to 90°.
Step 3 Connect the two paths to look like a pyramid, select both and hit Cmd/Ctrl + G to group the selection as one object. You now have a base design element that you can modify to create more variations. Use the Selection tool (V) to change the width, height and angle of the basic form.
Step 4 Next, we’ll enhance the forms by adding a basic stripe pattern. Copy Shape 2 and change the colour to Swatch 3. Hit Shift + Cmd/Ctrl + F10 to bring up the Transparency Window and change the Opacity to 30%. Create three copies of the path and stack them on top of each other to create the pattern.
