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 your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size as needed. Move her to the far right and up so her head is right next to the small black framed image. Use my tag for reference if needed. Add a drop shadow.
