I'm having the hardest time creating a marquee style image in illustator.. (something like this: http://img2.etsystatic.com/004/0/6043957/il_fullxfull.361553430_blus.j pg)

 

So far i've been able to make the rectangle witht he curved angles, but can't seem to get the circles inside of the marquee..

 

Does anyone know of a tutorial or a quick guide that can help me create one?

 

Thank you!

    Add a stroke, dashed, 1pt (or larger), rounded end caps, 0 dash, and a gap value twice the stroke size (or larger).

    Note the Appearance Panel in my screenshot. I've added 2 strokes to the object, one red and one white.
