This tutorial was written on May 25th 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

FTU Scrap Kit 'Girls Only' by Vicki @ The Scrappin Divaz Designz - HERE .
Template Used - MC Template #63 by Melissa @ Melissa's Creationz - HERE .
Effects Used - Textured Effects, Weave.
Font of Choice.
(no other tubes or masks used in this tutorial).

(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 85% smart size at this point. ( optional) Delete info layer, go to layers, add new raster layer, grab your floodfill tool from the tool palete and choose white colour as your foreground then floodfill the new layer, move this all the way down to the bottom of your canvas, while still on white layer, go to layers, select canvas size and select 500x500 so you have a little more room to work, if theres any transparent canvas showing click it with the floodfill tool.

Activate the layer named Raster 1, go to selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste a paper of choice from the kit as a new layer, resize a bit if needed, the papers are quite big, remember dont resize smaller than the marching ants, once happy with it go to selections, select invert then hit delete on your keyboard, selections, select none. Delete the original circle layer now.

Repeat that last step on ALL template layers except Raster 4 layer and add a dropshadow to each layer, delete the original layers as you go along.

Activate the layer named Raster 4, go to adjust, select brightness/contrast and move the brightness slider a little to the right to lighten the dots, click ok, go to adjust again and select hue/saturation/lightness this time, select colourise and play with the slider until you have a colour that matches your tube/papers.

On your top layer of your canvas paste your tube from the kit and resize as needed, place where you like it and add a dropshadow.

Activate the bottom white layer, take the scalloped frame from the kit and paste as a new layer, resize down til it fits nicely just around the circle layer, i colourised mine but the choice is yours, I also added the dots by going to effects, select textured effects, weave and use the following settings :-
Gap Size -2 .... Width - 8 .... Opacity - 1 .... Weave & Gap Colours - Choose one to match your tube/tag .... Fill Gaps - Checked. click ok.
Now add a dropshadow to this layer.

Click back to the top layer of your canvas and add any elements you want from the kit, resize each element as needed and remember to sharpen a little if resizing by a lot, place elements where you like and add a dropshadow to each layer.

Crop and resize now if you wish to.

Add your name, artist info and copyright info.

Save as jpeg or .png. and we're done lol.
