This Tutorial was written by me, Angel Flower, from my own ideas. Any similarities to others is coincedence. All my tutorials
are registered with TWI.

For this tutorial you will need
A tube of choice.I am using the work of Barbara Jensen. In order to use the image in this tutorial you MUST purchase it from

Filters: Xero radiance, Eyecandy 4000 gradient glow(optional)

Scrap kit- I am using an awesome kit called Blue Valentine, by Wacky Winnie Designz. you must purchase this kit from
The Creativity Box. You can visit her site here

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 dimensions the 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, and be sure to check the tou for scraps as well.

New image-600x600 transparent

Copy and paste frame1 as a new layer. Resize it twice by 75 percent.

Paste a paper of choice as a new layer, I used paper2. Move this layer below the frame layer. Grab your magic wand tool mode is add, match mode is rgb, tolerance 20, contiguous and anti alias checked. Make your frame layer active and click inside the center of it. Selections-modify-expand by about 6. Make your paper layer active and go selections-invert and hit delete on your keyboard. You should now only have paper showing through the frame.

Paste your tube as a new layer. Move this layer below the frame layer. Position it so the part you want shows through the frame.
Grab your magic wand and make your frame layer active. Click in the center of the frame. Once you have the dancing ants go to selections modify expand by 1. Go back to your tube layer and go selections invert. Hit delete on your keyboard. Select none

Still on your tube layer, go to effects-plugins-Xero radiance-Strangeness 128,Charm 50,Truth 128, Beauty 185

Copy and paste Gerber1 as a new layer. Resize it as needed and rotate it slightly using the pick tool and position how u like on the top left corner/side of the frame.

Paste your tube again as a new layer. Resize if needed. Position how u like on the tag. I went to image mirror on mine and placed it toward the bottom of my frame.

Copy and paste rose2 as a new layer. Resize it how you like. Move this layer below your tube layer. Position to the right side of the frame and use the pick tool to rotate it slightly so the stem is on the frame but under your tube. See my tag for how it should look. Once happy, duplicate your rose and resize the duplicate so it is a little smaller and position like mine or how you like.

Give each rose layer a drop shadow by going effects-3d effects, drop shadow. I used 0,0,100,10 black. Also give your other flower layer a drop shadow, I used 0,0,80,5 black for that one.

Give your main tube a drop shadow, I used -3,2,60,10,black.

I then opened the stars1 and pasted it as a new layer. I moved the layer to the bottom of my tag and resized it twice by 75 percent, then adjusted it how
i wanted with the pick tool.

One last thing i added was the little bag 1. I resized it so it was small and moved it below my tube layer so it looks as though its under her hands.

Now is the time if you wish to resize your entire tag to do so. Go to image resize- make sure all layers and lock aspect ratio are checked, choose pixels
instead of percent and make it the size u want.

Add your copyright so it is clearly visible. Add your name in a font and color of choice. I added a gradient glow to mine using eye candy 4000. I then added a
drop shadow.

Thats it, save and you are done!
