Let's Get Started
Open a new transparent image 650x650, floodfill with white We can crop or resize later i just like room to work.
Open frame 3 in PSP c/p as a new layer, resize by 85% smartsize and move it toward the bottom of your tag,make sure you leave room at the bottom to add your elements.
Click inside the frame with your magic wand, expand by 5, open paper of choice i used 6, c/p as a new layer, resize by 85% smartsize, invert/delete, move paper below your frame duplicate and on the duplicated layer change the blend mode to multiply,this makes the colors on the paper more vivid, do not deselect,
Open your tube, c/p as a new layer arrange where you want to, now select your paper layer select all/float/defloat/invert, now take your eraser tool and erase the bottom part of your tube that overhangs the martching ants.now hit invert again
c/p your closeup tube as a new layer, mirror and arrange on the right side of the frame, when your happy hit invert again and the delete/select none, duplicate, on the duplicated tube gaussian blur 2.00 and change the blend mode to screen
now back to your main tube, duplicate, on the duplicated layer gaussian blur 2.00 and change the blend mode to soft light, or whatever looks best for the tube you are using.add a slight dropshadow to the original tube layer.
Now time to dress up our tag, add any elements you would like
Lolli - Resize by 45%, duplicate and resize again by 85% then mirror and arrange with the other lolli
Sweet Print 2 - do not resize move to the bottom of the frame and duplicate and add noise to the duplicated layer, uniform/monochrome checked/25%
Marshmallows 1 - 45% mirror and move to the right bottom corner of your frame so the lolli's are behind them
Add dropshadow of choice to your elements and frame, DO NOT add dropshadow to the Sweet Print Layers.
Time to add your mask, open paper 2 c/p as a new layer apply mask, merge group and then add noise uniform/monochrome checked/25%
when your happy with your tag, close off the background and merge visable, resize if you need to and save as PNG
