Supplies Needed
2 Graphics of choice or 1 graphic
I used 2 and blended mine together, if you do this make sure they go together.
Font of choice, I used Grenouille
Any version of PSP
Factory J Plugin toners Here
Scrap Supplies here

Let's get started

Open up a new image 600*400 we will resize later
Open up your graphics of choice.

I used 2 pics and blended them together, if you used one that's fine.
Open up the torn frame in the supplies
copy and paste as a new layer, resize this by 60% smartsize one, then sharpen once.

use your magic wand and click inside the frame, expand by 5 and paste your
graphic of choice as a new layer, resize some so it looks nice in the frame
invert, then delete, select none, bring your graphic layer below the frame.
Add a drop shadow to the frame layer
V&H-1
Opacity-100
Blur-2.00
Color- Blk

Open up the cardboard frame in the supplies
Copy and paste as a new layer, I resized this @ 85% Smartsize twice till it
fit behind my frame, then I used the deform tool and brought it in some so it fits
nicely behind the frame as a background, use my sample as a guide.
I also resized my other frame so its not bigger than the cardboard piece, use
my sample as a guide.


Time to decorate.

Open up the stiches in the supplies, copy and paste as a new layer
Resize these @ 60% smartsize 3 times, I put this on the bottom of the
cardboard frame so it looks stapled, I erased the parts that hang off.
Sharpen twice, add the same drop shadow as before. duplicate it once and flip it
so its on the top of the cardboard piece. Use sample as guide.

Open up the ribbon in the supplies, copy and paste as a new layer
Resize this @ 60% smartsize 4 times, then once more @ 85% smartsize
Sharpen once and add the same drop shadow as before.

Open up the buttons in the supplies, I selected the metal one, choose which ever.
Copy and paste as a new layer resize @ 60% smartsize 5 times and sharpen twice
add the same drop shadow as before, duplicate once and place on the ribbon.
Use my sample as a guide to place them or place as you like.

Open up the star in the supplies, copy and paste as a new layer
resize this @ 60% smartsize 4 times and sharpen twice, use same drop shadow
place this on the top of the frame in the left corner, duplicate once and place
other one on the right side of the frame, use my sample as a guide.

Open up the tag in the supplies, copy and paste as a new layer.
Resize this @ 60% smartsize 3 times, sharpen once. add the same drop shadow.

Open up the staples in the supplies, copy and paste as a new layer
resize these @ 50% smartsize once and sharpen twice, duplicate it 3 times and
merge just the staples together, then place on the tag like in my sample or
were you like.

Open up the notebook paper, copy and paste as a new layer
resize this @ 70% smartsize once, sharpen once.
Bring this below all the other layers, add same drop shadow as before.
duplicate this one and mirror it, then merge these two layers together.

Choose your font, Merge all layers visble, Resize if you like, I kept mine as is.

Put your name and any copyright info on the tag, save as a png or jpeg which
ever you like, I like png cause they go on backgrounds better.

Your done!! I hope you enjoyed my tut, I love seeing samples you make :)
