This tutorial is for those that have experience working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on May 9, 2013 and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I use PSP 9, but any version should work. I do not allow my tutorials to be translated and please do not claim them as your own. If you would like to share your results than please feel free to contact me, I would love to see others results. You can email me at theycallmetig@yahoo.com  Thank you!

Top Tag:
With the  plugin effect which looks great on a white background
but the darker backgrounds tend to make the tag look strange.
Bottom Tag:
I left the plugin effect off which allows the tag
to be placed on any background.

26)   Copy and paste as a new layer on our working image

27)   Place the ribbon at the bottom of our frame and slightly over to the left

29)   Now we are going to remove parts of the ribbon along the bottom of the frame to make the ribbon look as if its wrapped around the frame

32)   Copy and place to the bottom right corner of our frame

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
