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 if your choice. I am using a cute lil tube by Paci Peroni. This adorable lil guy is an exclusive for Scraps N Company and is part of the Perfect Love Collab that you can get at Scraps N Company for free by spending $13.50 in store. There are tons of goodies in this collab and well worth the money spent.
The kit is by Jens Sweet Temptations and is also part of the above collab. This kit is jam packed with lots of amazing elements!!!
Template by Flaminsal. I am using template #4 from this page http://firedbyflamin.blogspot.co.uk/2014/02/tag-haven-blog-train-cupids-arrow.html
Font of your choice. I am using 2 Peas Silly. This is a PTU font.
Drop shadow used throughout:
2 2 60 5.50 black
Open the tag template and shift+D to duplicate and then close the original. This is so you can use it again if you wish. Now delete the following layers from the template: credits, hearts 2, hearts 1 and background. Make your canvas large enough to work with.
Merge together the Purple Rect 2 and Purple Rect 1. Selections select all float and defloat. Open paper 6 from the kit and copy and paste as a new layer. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Delete the original layer that the rectangles are on. Add a drop shadow to this new layer.
Make the circle layer active and selections select all float and defloat. Layers new raster layer. Make a gradient using 2 colors from your tube. Set the angle to 45 and repeats 4. Flood fill your new layer with this gradient. Selections select none. Delete the original circle layer. Add a drop shadow to your new circle layer.
Make the dotted circle layer active and add noise at 55%. Add your favorite inner bevel. Add a drop shadow to this layer.
Merge together the top and bottom pink stripe layers. Selections select all float and defloat. Open paper 5 and copy and paste as a new layer. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Delete the original stripe layer. Add a drop shadow to this new layer.
Make the rectangle layer active. Selections select all float and defloat. Open paper 7 and copy and paste as a new layer. Selections invert and hit delete. Selections select none. Delete the original layer. Add a drop shadow to this new layer.
Open your tube and copy and paste as a new layer. Re-size until just slightly smaller than the circle part of the tag template. Place so he is centered in the tag template. Add a drop shadow.
Open element 27 and copy and paste as a new layer. Place so it is at the top of the tag slightly higher than the circle in the template. Layers arrange send to bottom. Add a drop shadow. Duplicate and move this duplicate to the bottom so it is just slightly below the circle in the template. If you like to keep your layers organized like I do go ahead and merge these 2 layers together.
Repeat the above steps with element 34 but make sure this one is on top of the last one.
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.
Elements I used:
Add your name or any other text to the papers in the envelopes.
Add your license and copyright information.
Crop and Re-size if you wish.
Save your tag.
