Ok Let's get prepared, shall we?
First - Download and install the font.
Download and install the Filters before opening PSP.
Download and open my frame in PSP.
Open whatever tube you're using in PSP.

Now - Duplicate the frame - Close out the original.

Here we go.  Ready?

Let's change the canvas size to 800 x 800 pixels.
This will give us plenty of room to work in. :o)
Using your magic wand - Click inside the frame - make sure you
get the areas by the flowers!  Selections - Modify - Expand
by 12 (This will make sure we get good coverage with
our paper).  Ok.  Now let's choose a paper from the kit -
Resize 25% - Copy and paste as new layer - Arrange
to your liking.  Selections - Invert - Delete.
Now move the paper layer below the frame layer.

Ok.  Let's copy our tube - Paste as new layer.
Resize if needed.  (If you're using the same tube I am,
resize it by 45%)  Arrange the tube to your liking.
(Still keeping the selection)
Duplicate your tube layer and hide the copy for now.
Making sure you're on the bottom tube layer - Hit
delete.  Select none.  Unhide the duplicate tube layer -
Move to the top of the image, above the frame layer.

Using your eraser tool, erase the bottom parts of the 
tube that show beyond the inside of the frame - But
leave the head alone.  Once satisfied - apply a drop 
shadow of 2, -2, 80, 10 - Black to the bottom tube
layer.  Apply the same shadow to the frame layer.
Merge visible.

Almost done!!

Duplicate the image layer.
Resize the top layer by 85%.
Make the bottom image layer active.
Effects - Plugins - Filter Factory M - Motion Trail
And use the settings below:

Then Effects - Plugins - Filter Factory M - Explosive
Blur with the settings below:

Apply Explosive Blur a second time.
Now let's finish that off with a Gaussian Blur of 2.
Adjust - Blur - Gaussian - Radius of 2.
Lower the opacity of this image layer to 80%.

We're going to add one final element.
Open hpSMe10 - Resize 25% - Copy and paste as new
layer.  Make sure it's between the two image layers.
Duplicate - Mirror - Drop shadow both element layers -
Merge visible.

Now resize and crop the image to your liking.
Add your name and all copyright info.
Save as .png for a transparent background and .jpg
for a white background.

I hope you enjoyed this tut and it wasn't too confusing to you!!
Thanks :o)  

 Just to show off a little bit.... I also made the following two tags
from the same kit.  See the possibilities?!
