Please check out my “About my tutorials” page before starting, thank you.

Unless otherwise stated, I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 80, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 650 pixels and fill with white.

Open pp6 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.  Resize 95%.

Open el6 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55% and place in position, we will come back to this later.

Open el7 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el27 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65% and rotate 30 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el25 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el9 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el8 and paste as a new layer.   Mirror, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el28 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el22 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 80%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube and paste as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.   If you are using one of Barbara’s layered tubes, duplicate it and close the original, pick your layers and merge visible.   I resized my tube 75%.

Open el11 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow, repeat the drop shadow changing the vertical and horizontal to -5.

Open el12 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 60%, drag down below el11,place in position and apply the drop shadow (remember to change the settings back).

Open el26 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el4, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.  Flip, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el16 and paste as a new layer.  Mirror and fliip, rotate 40 degrees to the right, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open el1 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 45%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustements.

Go back to el6 (the frame), select the interior and expand the selection by 20.  Open pp9 and copy, make a new layer below the frame and paste the paper into the selection.   Open your tube again or the close up if you have one, paste as a new layer and position inside the frame resizing as needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect.  I resized 75%.  Apply the drop shadow to the tube and merge it down onto the paper.  Still on this merged layer, go to Effects – Photo Effects – Sepia Toning, set the amount to age to 75 and click ok.  Now go to Effects – Photo Effects – Time Machine, make sure the box “Photo Edges” is unchecked, click on the box “Early Colour”, that’s the fifth box from the left, set the intensity to 50 and click ok.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
