Playing With Pixies
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.
Tube of your choice or you may use the tubes that are included in the kit like I have.

Open your animation and take note of the number of frames in the animation. The one I am using has 18 frames. Duplicate the frames in your tag to match the number of frames in your animation. Select all frames on both tag and animation. Grab frame 1 of the animation and drag it to frame 1 of the tag. Drop into position. View your animated tag. If you are happy re-size if needed and save.
