Supplies | Tube, mask and font of choice (I used slacker)

This tagtorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge
of paint shop and I will not go into great detail on how to do basic steps.

Open the papers and frame in psp and the tube you will be using. (you may,
of course, colorize the papers to suit your tube.

Open a new transparent image 650 x 650 you can resize later.

Flood fill with white if desired. This is the base for your tag.
Copy and paste one of the papers as a new layer.
Copy and paste the frame as a new layer, select all, float, invert
and paste the other paper as a new layer and then hit delete and then
close out the original frame layer. Make a selection just inside the border
of the frame and invert and hit delete on the bottom paper layer.

Add your tube, any drop shadows you desire, your text and any copyright info

Now might be a good time to save your tag in progress if you haven't already.

If you want to add one of the papers supplied as a new layer above the
white bottom layer and apply a mask, you can do so.

Resize as desired and crop and save.

Show off your new tag!

Here is another tag that I made today while writing this tutorial.
