Click the tag to preview at full size. This tutorial was written by Marta on February 14, 2009. Any resemblance to any other tutorial is coincidental. Do not copy and paste this tutorial elsewhere on the net. Absolutely NO Scripting and/or translating of this tutorial.

For this tutorial you will need:

Tube of choice
Font of choice (I used Luna Bar)
Mura's Meister - Copies
ScrapKit *Bourbon Street* by Jill of Created by Jill.
You can purchase it HERE.

I am using the artwork of Elias Chatzoudis, you can find his licensed art at MPT.

Let's get started:

Open a new image 550x550 and background set to white. Copy & paste flower3 as a new layer. Add drop shadow. Effects/Mura's Meister/Copies/Set to Encirle/Default.

Copy & paste the glitterdrops as a new layer and place at the top of the shelves. Copy & paste the raffiawrap1 as a new layer and place to your liking. Copy & paste the streetlamp as a new layer and place to the left of the shelves. Copy & paste sign2 as a new layer. Copy & paste sign3 as a new layer. Add drop shadow to all layers.

Working on the sign3 layer, using your Deform Tool, hold down the control key on your keyboard, move the left sides smaller. Play with this until you get the sign to look like it's at an angle. Adjust/Sharpness/Sharpen.

Copy & paste tag2 as a new layer and move it to desired position. Copy & paste your tube as a new layer and place it to the right of the shelves. I couldn't use the wordart because I wanted the saying to run horizontal across the bottom, using a scripty font, type out "I'll show'em if you throw'em". Copy & paste the beads as new layers. I added 4 different colors, and place at the bottom of your tag. Add drop shadow to all layers.

Add any additional ribbons, flowers, butterflies, or elements of your choice.

Crop or resize to your liking. Add your text, copyright info, and watermark, and save as a jpg, png, or gif file.

That's it.. all done!
