Kiss From A Rose
This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to make your tag unique by using your own choice of tube and scrap kit. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use the same supplies I have used. This tutorial assumes you have a knowledge of paint shop pro. Any resemblance to any other tag or tutorial is purely coincidental.

Open paper 5 and shift+D to duplicate.
Close the original.
Promote the background layer to a raster layer.
Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Apply your mask to the paper layer.
Delete the mask layer and merge the group.
Selections select all float and defloat.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer and position within the selected area of the mask.
Selections invert and hit delete. This will clear any excess.
You can hit delete a few times if you want and it will lighten some of the tube.
I hit delete 5 times.
Selections select none.
On the tube layer apply the Xero Radiance plugin using the default settings.
Duplicate the tube layer and go to adjust blur gaussian blur by 6.00
Lower the opacity on the blurred layer to 60
Add a drop shadow to the bottom tube layer and the mask.
