Open up Template and ShiftD and close original...delete copyright layer
close all layers except the background layer...the one we'll be working on

Choose a paper of choice/copy/paste...now go to layers/Load/
save mask/load mask from disk/ and find your mask of choice...with these setting
see photo below....

go to layers/merge group

Before starting on the template rename each layer starting at the bottom excluding
the backgr layer...It will make it easier on what is papered and what is colored.
leave the word art layers as is.....

activate each layer separtely with these directions below:

selection/modify/expand by 1 choose a paper/
copy and paste as a new layer/resize/click on each layer and invert...then
go back to the paper layer and click delete...merge down. add drop shadow to all layers

Leave layer 2 as is/on layer 5 I used color #5a3409/on layer 7 & 8 I used color #2a2108

Now you can either add your elements as you go along on each layer or wait until you finish
doing each layer to design your tag

I added an element to layers 1-5-8 and 9...Make sure you add a drop shadow on all elements
as you go along.
Now add your tubes where you would like them to be/resize/sharpen and add drop shadow
add more elements if you desire...don't forget to add drop shadow

Forum Tag

now the forum tag is a miniature of the tag...the forum tag is just like the tag only
smaller so make sure you resize everything to fit....it's better to resize as you go
because it will look clearer than just resizing the original tag..so make the forum
tag from scratch just like the tag...forum tag is 600x200


For the avatar I just used a back ground paper and the two tubes from the tag
and added an element to it...avatar is 150x150

Add your copyright and watermark..and give to a friend

You're done!!!
