Click the tag to see it full size
This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorialsare registered with TWI.
For this tutorial you will need A tube of choice.I am using the work of Jose Cano.
In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from MPT.
Scrap kit- I am using an awesome kit called Pink Chocolate Sweets by Miss Foxys Designs, you must purchase this kit from The Creativity Box. You can visit her site here http://missfoxysdesigns.blogspot.com/
A Note: Anytime you need to resize something,such as an element or paper, you may do it one of two ways. The first method is by going to image-resize. Under pixel dimensions, make sure the drop box says percent,Lock aspect ratio should be checked and all layers unchecked, then change the width and height under the pixel dimensionsthe percent you think will work. I usually start with about 80 percent. If it is still too big, you can repeat the steps, adjusting the percent if needed. If it is too small you can undo by going to edit undo, and adjust the percent as needed.The second way to resize something is to grab your pick tool, the little arrow, click on the layer you wish to resize and as long as you have clicked the pick tool, you should see a type of box around the layer or element or whatever you are resizing.Grab the box by a corning and drag it to the size you want. Keep in mind that most artisits do not allow you to make the tubes bigger, andbe sure to check the tou for scraps as well.
Open paper 13 and paste as a new layer. You will need to resize this. I resized mine by 65 percent.
Grab your magic wand, mode is add, match mode rgb, tolerance 20, anti alias checked, outside. Click in the center of the paper.You should now the the little dancing ants around the plain paper only. Go to selections invert,then go selections-promote selection to layer. Selections-select none. Now you should have another layer with the folded paper on it alone.
open one of the heart print frames, I used number 2, and paste as a new layer. Resize about like mine,about 60 percent, and go image mirror. Position on the top right corner of the paper. See my tag for reference.
Paste the rose2 as a new layer. Resize it about like mine and place at the top of the frame so it slightly covers the edge of the folded paper.See my tag if needed. Duplicate this twice and place the in a row as i have mine. If you made your roses smaller than mine, you will need to duplicate your roses a few more times so they fit like mine.
On each rose layer, I chose to sharpen them. Click on your first rose, go to adjust, sharpness, sharpen. Do this to the remaining roses.
Now paste the rose again, this time make it smaller than the last ones, postion along the heart frame on the left side of it so the firstsmall rose touches the edge of the bigger one. If needed see my tag for placement. Duplicate the rose as needed and postion following the edge of the left side of the frame. I used the same sharpen tool for each of these. I also gave each of these smaller roses a drop shadow.Go to effects, 3d effects, drop shadow, 0,0,75,4,black.
Open one of the flowers, I used flower 1. Paste as a new layer and resize. These should be about the size of the small roses.I duplicated mine so I had a total of five. Position them along the right side of the heart frame up to the edge of the paper.The first one should be just under the small rose at the tip of the heart. See my tag if needed. Again i repeated the sharpen and thedrop shadow.
Paste the flower again, this time leaving it a little bigger. I used five of these also. Position the first one under the small flower layersat the right edge of the paper. Position however many you need in a straight row down until you get to the folded paper part. See my tag if needed.and once more apply the sharpen and drop shadow to each one.
Open the cherry blossom 2. Paste as a new layer. Go image mirror. Resize and place to the right of the tag on top of the bigger flowers. Place how you likeor see my tag. Give it a drop shadow of choice.
Now i chose to paste one of the doodles so the paper back wouldnt look so plain. This is up to you. I used flowers and hearts 1. Paste it as a new layer.Resize and postion toward the bottom right of the tag. Move this layer so it is above the pink paper but below the folded part. I then duplicated this layerand went image, flip. I positioned it over the left of the tag.
Open the main tube you are going to use and paste it as a new layer. Put it into positon like mine, or where you like, If you need to resize it do so, or if you just have parts sticking out of the bottom or the side, You can grab the eraser tooland carefully erase them just enough so it doent stick out. The other way you can fix it is to grab the magic wand and change it to the selection too by clicking the little drop arrow next to it. Choose selection, type is rectangle, mode is add, feather 0, anti alias checked.Draw a rectangle around ONLY the parts you want to delete. Hit delete on your key board. Selections, select none.
Give your tube a drop shadow of choice.
Now open the tube you want inside the heart. Paste as a new layer and postion the part you want to show inside the frame.Resize to how you need it. Grab the magic wand tool, same settings as before, and click in the center of the frame. Selections,modify, expand by about 3. keep selected and click on your tube layer, selections invert, delete.
Double click this layer and change the opacity to 50.
Give the heart frame a drop shadow.
If you wish to resize your entire tag, now is the time to do it. To do the entire tag, use the image resize method, this time changing the percent to pixels and choosing the size, and make sure all layers is checked.
Once happy with it, add your copyright so it is clearly visible.
Add your name in a font of choice. I then went to layers, convert to raster, then adjust add noise,random, monochrome and 10 percent.Give it a drop shadow, i used 0,0,100,7,black.
Save and your are done.
