This tutorial is meant purely as a guide. Feel free to use your own choice of tube or scrap kit to make your tag unique. If you want your tag to look just like mine them 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 completely coincidental.

Open element 58 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Make your canvas large enough to give you plenty of room to work with. Open paper 10 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame. Apply the mask of your choice. Delete the mask layer and merge the group. I added a slight drop shadow using the following settings : 1 -1 100 2.00 dark blue to the mask layer to help it stand out a bit. Using your magic wand and select the inside of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 3. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Open paper 12 and copy and paste into selection. Leave selected. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Position within the frame and erase any bits that you do not want hanging outside of the frame. Add a drop shadow to both the tube and the frame.
