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.
Supplies Used:
Tube of choice. I am using an image by Ted Hammond. I purchased this image when his work was sold at CILM which is no longer in business. However you can now purchase his work at
Scrap Kit is a little Mini Kit by Amy Marie’s Kits called Lexi. You can purchase this kit at
Font of your choice. I am using Nalika. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
0 0 85 11.00 black

Let's Begin:
Open F1 and shift+D to duplicate. Close the original. Image free rotate to the right 90 degrees. Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Using your magic wand select the inside of the frame. Selections modify and expand by 5. Layers new raster layer and drag under the frame. Open a paper of your choice from the kit and copy and paste into selection. Selections select none. I used paper 2.
Add a drop shadow to the frame.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size if needed so your tube is just slightly larger than the frame. Move to the far left. Add a drop shadow.
Now we are going to use some of the elements from the kit and make them look like they are inside and popping out of the frame. Use whichever elements you would like or I will the elements I used below.
Elements I used :
Add a drop shadow to all elements.
Add some text along the top if you wish.
Add your name.
Add your copyright and licensing information.

Crop and save.
