This tutorial is for those that have a working knowledge of PSP. This tutorial was written by me on August 18, 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 the tutorial please send a link to my blog.  Thank you! (If you click the tag it will show you a full size image so that you can tell I have the copyrights on my tags) 

Things Needed:

Tube/Image of choice:  I am using the work of the talented Zindy S. D. Nielsen
Kit of choice:  Glamourous Scrap Kit from Alika Scraps which you can buy here at Pimp My Tags w/Scraps
Plugins: Muras Meister : Copies , Gradient Glow
Masks/Templates: None
Font, Animation, or other items needed: Font of choice 

Let’s Begin:

1)      Open a new transparent image 600x600 (we can resize at the end if you so desire)

2)      Open as42.png resize by 75% twice

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

4)      Place towards the top of our working image

5)      Duplicate this layer

6)      Image-Flip

7)      Now duplicate this layer

8)      Image- rotate- free rotate- right- 90 (all layers Unchecked)

9)      Now line this up with the top and bottom 

10)   Duplicate once more

11)   Image- Mirror

12)   Again you need to line this layer up to your liking (we are making a frame and the lace WILL NOT line up but we will work with this)

13)   Merge all layers visible once satisfied

14)   Adjust- Sharpness- Sharpen

15)   Resize  by 50% (all layers Unchecked)

16)   Duplicate this layer and then close off the top layer

17)   Making sure the bottom layer is highlighted open muras meisters copies with the following settings:  
      18)   Now click with your magic wand in to the squares

19)   Once you have the squares selected create a new layer

20)   Now open a paper of your choosing

21)   I chose paper as_paper05.jpg

22)   Copy  the paper of your choosing

23)   Paste into selection

24)   Select None

25)   Now move the layer to the bottom

26)   Close off all layers except the very top one (Our single Square frame)

27)   Using your magic wand click in the center of our frame

28)   Open another paper I used as_paper07.jpg

29)   Copy your paper

30)   Create a new raster layer

31)   Paste your paper into selection

32)   Move this layer just below our top frame layer

33)   Open as13.png and paste as a new layer (being the top layer)

34)   Open as04.png and resize by 50% and copy and paste to your liking (I put them in 2 of the corners

35)   Open the tube of your choice and place to your liking (I placed mine in the center ) I also placed a second tube in both of the sides

36)   Once your tubes are placed to your liking open  as33.png and resize by 50%

37)   Place in the top left corner but send this layer to the bottom

38)   Duplicate this layer

39)   Image mirror

40)   Duplicate again

41)   Image-flip

42)   Duplicate one more time

43)   Image- mirror

44)   Next open as34.png and resize by 50% 3 times or to your liking

45)   Place the little rose in the center of our ribbons

46)   At this point I am going to let you add the extra elements you would like to add simply because at this point this tag is portraying the way I feel since the loss of my Mom. So there are many cute and beautiful elements so it depends on how YOU feel. You are free to look at my tag as a reference and make it the same way I did, but again that is up to you.

47)   Make sure to add your copyright and your name!!!

48)   Once you add your name if in a dark color you might want to add a gradient glow in a lighter color so it shows up in some of the darker backgrounds used in Forums.

49)   Thank you so much for trying my tutorial and I would love to see the results.

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!!!!
