Open up a new image, I like to use a tagger size of 500 x 500
Flood fill white
Open up frame 1 and right click copy, then right click paste as new layer, then open up paper 5, and right click copy, then right click paste as new layer, and place the paper below the frame on your layers palette, resize your paper if you have to, using your pick tool, Then with your magic wand tool, click inside the frame, then go up to Selections then go to Modify, then go to Expand, and expand by 8, then click on the paper layer in your layers palette, and then go to Selections, then click Invert, then hit delete on your keyboard, then go back to Selections, and click Select None (deselect). Your paper should now be inside your frame like this.
Okay so now open up your tube, and right click copy, and right click paste as new layer. Now place her in the middle of your frame and when you have where you would like her, duplicate your tube, to do so, right click on the tube layer on your layers palette and click duplicate. Now move the duplicate above the frame. So one tube is below the frame and the other is on top of the frame. Now using your magic wand again, click inside the frame, and then go to Selections-Modify-Expand- expand by 8, and then click on the tube layer that is below the frame on your layers palette, and then go to Selections-Invert-hit delete on your keyboard, then Deselect. Then using your eraser tool, erase the parts of the tube that is on top of the frame, that are sticking out. So your tag should look like this:
Now this is the fun part, now you get to add any elements you wish from the kit to finish your tag. Just make sure you copy and paste each element as a NEW LAYER.
Now open up paper 10 and right click copy, then right click paste as new layeron your tag, and then add your mask. Go to Layers-Load or Save mask-Load from disk, find your mask your downloaded then click Load. Then duplicate your mask layer.
