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 then 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.
