This tutorial was written using Adobe Photoshop CS5 and is for those with a working knowledge of Photoshop. This tutorial can be adapted for anyone with a working knowledge of PSP.
Before we start, I would like to remind you to save frequently. This is in case your program closes on you as mine is known to do. J I save as a .psd file. This keeps your elements in layers instead of merging everything the way a .png file does. I also I do not say copy and paste your element onto your canvas. In photoshop, it is possible to drag and drop. But if you are more comfortable copying and pasting, then by all means do what is easier for you. I also use a white background while I’m making my tag but I delete it when I am finished.
The tube I’m using is White Lily by Ishika Chowdhury. You can find where to buy it here. Remember, you cannot use any tubes without a license.
Pretty In Pink PTU scrap kit by Alexis’s Graphic Palace. You can find where to get it here, here or here.

Okay, let’s get started.
Open a canvas 500x500.
Create your mask using paper 7. Place in the center of your canvas or to your liking.
Frame9: Reduce to these settings. Height - 93.5%. Width – 103.3%. Place in the center of your canvas towards the bottom. Add a drop shadow.

Open your tube. Place it to your liking over the frame. You will need to erase the excess of the tube. The object is to have your tube look like it’s coming out of the frame at the top but the bottom is still inside the frame. Once you have it to your liking. Add a drop shadow.
