~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open your template
Image → Duplicate
Close out the original
Delete the 'info' credits layer
Resize the canvas to 800px by 800px
It gives us a bit of room to work and we'll resize later :)

On the template we're just going to work from the bottom up
Adding papers of choice to each of the various parts of it

Above the background layer add paper09
Apply your mask to this layer

To Light green rectangle
Select the rectangle
Add paper14 above this layer
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Delete the original layer
Add a drop shadow

White Oval
Add a drop shadow

Pink Oval
Select the oval
Add paper08 above this layer
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Delete the original layer

Merge Bottom Green Strip & Top green strip together
Select the strips
Add paper10 above this layer
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Delete the original layer
Add a drop shadow

light green square
Select the square
Add paper07 above this layer
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Delete the original layer
Add a drop shadow

dotted square
change the blend mode to soft light

Move the bottom green rectangle layer below the top stars layer
Merge the top and bottom green rectangle layers together
Merge the star layers together as well

Select the merged green rectangle layers
Add paper13 above this layer
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Delete the original layer
Add a drop shadow

Select the merged stars layers
Change the color to something light from your tube
Add a bit of an outer glow that also matches your tube

delete the wordart d/s layer
I just want the drop shadow to match the one I'm using throughout the tag
If you'd like to leave this on yours that's all good!
Raster 8
add your drop shadow to this one :)

wordart black
Change this to match your tube or tag
I used a gradient of the green and pink
Add a bevel and emboss to this as well

plum oval
add a new layer above this
Select this oval
Using the gradient I did for the wordart I added it into this oval as well
delete the original oval
Duplicate our oval that we have now
Filter → FotoEffex → Scanlines
Change the width to 3
Change the blend mode to soft light
To the bottom one add a drop shadow

plum circle
repeat the steps we just did with the oval here
I just did my gradient going the opposite direction

white rings
add a subtle drop shadow here

Now open up your full body tube and add it to your canvas
Near the middle or however you'd like it
Resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light, opacity to 50%
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add your tube or closeups in between each of the plum circle and overlay layers
Resize and repositioned as you'd like them
Erase any of the tube that goes outside of them
Change the blend mode of each to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%

Now we're going to dig further into the kit and add the elements we'd like to embellish the tag some more!
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless otherwise stated:

Swirl01 (no drop shadow)
Swirl04 (no drop shadow)
CurledRibbon03
beads01
beads01
flower01
button03
flower03
flower02
letter02
paperheart03
rose01
tag03
cameo01
rose04
key01
bow01
bow03
I added some sparkles as well that I got elsewhere, this is optional of course :)

Add your name

*****Most Important****
Add your copyright information

Once you're finished close out the white background and save to your liking and you're done!

Thank you so much for giving my tut a whirl!

Huge Huggles!
