Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio, and I'm going to show you how to crop a border in Illustrator. So here I have my image and my border that I'm going to crop down. And so what I want to do is actually crop this image so that there's no white on the side. So that my art board is the exact same size as the edge of my border. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to go down to the bottom of my little tool bar. And right above the fill there's this little button, it's called the artboard tool. Click that. And you'll see a dotted line appear on your artboard. So just drag your artboard down until it hits the border on all sides. And it could be a little stubborn so you are going to have to really play around with it. And there you go. And then to get out of this you just click another button and there's your cropped artboard. My name is Alex and this is how you crop a border in Illustrator. Thank you.
