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 84 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Make your canvas large enough to work with. Using your magic wand select the inside of the frames. Selections modify and expand by 3. Open paper 10 and copy and paste as a new layer. Drag under the frame and selections invert. Hit delete. Selections select none. Using your magic wand again select the inside of only one side of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 2. Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Position within the frame. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Repeat with the other frame. Change layer property to Luminance Legacy on both tubes. Merge these 2 tube layers together. Apply the Xero Mistifier plugin using the default settings. Add a drop shadow to the frame. Merge all the layers visible. Duplicate. On the bottom layer go to adjust blur Gaussian blur at 12.00. Resize this bottom layer by 105%. Apply the DSB Flux Linear Transmission plugin using the following settings:
Add noise to this layer using uniform monochrome and 25%.
Open your tube again and copy and paste as a new layer at the top. Re-size as needed. Position in the center of the frames. Apply the Xero Mistifier plugin again the same as before. Add a drop shadow.
Now let’s dress the tag up with elements from the kit. I will list the elements I used. Feel free to use other elements to make your tag unique. Placement of the elements is completely up to you. If you want your tag to look just like mine then use my tag for reference.
