This tutorial was written on May 5th 2009 by Susan aka Hippiedaze.
The idea for this tag is off my own head lol and any resemblance is purely coincidence.
General Knowledge of psp is required, tutorial was written in psp 9 but will work in other versions.

Supplies Needed

Tubes of Choice I used the artwork of Rion (pinuptoons), you must have a proper license to use his work please visit CILM - HERE .
FTU Scrap Kit 'Helen Moore' part of the friendship collection by Bel Vidotti - HERE .
Template Used - Template #25 by Lacarolita @ Lacarolitas Designz - HERE .
Mask Used - Babes Designz Mask #16 by Marcia @ Babes Designz - HERE .
No Plugins Used.
Font of Choice.
Dropshadow all layers throught out.

(Open all supplies and save mask to psp folder before you begin)

Lets Get Started Open the template, hit shift & d on your keyboard,this pastes the template as new image, close the original template. I resized all layers by 75% smart size at this point. ( optional) Delete info layer, activate the bottom white layer, go to image, select canvas size, choose 500x500, click ok, if theres any transparent canvas showing grab your floodfill tool and fill white.

Activate Raster layer 1, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste paper of choice, resize it a bit if you want to, go to selections, select invert, hit delete on the keyboard and then select none. Now you can delete the original layer.

Repeat the same step for Raster layers 5 & 7, use different papers each time.

Activate Raster layer 3, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste wave element as a new layer, resize a little then when happy go to selections, select invert and then hit delete on your keyboard. Do not deselect yet.
Re-activate Raster 3 layer and paste a paper of your choice as a new layer, resize then hit delete on your keyboard, go to selections, select invert and then hit delete on the keyboard, select none now.

Activate Raster 2 layer, repeat the same step for raster 1 layer and use different paper. Delete the original layer.

Now do the same on all Frame layers. Add a small dropshadow to these layers.

Activate the bottom white bg layer, paste a paper from the kit, go to layers, load mask from disc, then find the first mask we loaded at the start (BabesDesignz Mask #16) Make sure the following settings are set...
Fit to canvas - checked .... Source luminace - checked .... Invert transparency - checked .... Hide Mask - checked.
Go to layers, merge group & resize to suit your tag using the deform tool if needed till you get it how you want it.

Go back to your top layer and paste your tube, resize and place where you like it, add dropshadow.

Add some elements from the kit,remember to resize them to your liking and place where you want around your tag, (see mine) ,Dropshadow elements.

Crop or resize your tag if you want to to your preffered size in the usual way. I resized at start but cropped a little at this point.

Add your name, artist info & copyright info.
Save as jpeg or .png. and we're done lol.
