Any resemblance to another
tutorial is purely coincidental.
For this tutorial, I'm using a tube
by Rebecca Sinz. It is available at
her store.

Tube of choice
Scrap of choice.
I’m using a kit called The Orchid
by Dark Yarrow.
It is also available at DAH

Open a 600x600 new image.
Open up your tube & scrap supplies.

Choose a frame of choice.
Resize 80% or as needed.
Paste the frame as a new layer.

Click inside your frame with your
magic wand tool.
Selections modify expand by 10.

Paste a paper of choice.
Selections invert & press delete.
Move the paper under the frame layer.

Keep selected.
On your tube, resize 85%.
Paste between the two layers on your tag.
Duplicate once.
Move the tube copy layer to the top
in your layer palette.

Back on the original tube layer,
press delete.
Select none.
Now on the tube copy layer,
use your eraser tool
to erase parts of the tube showing
past the frame you don't want.

Add a drop shadow to the frame
& original tube layers on the tag.
