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

activate each layer separately 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

Go to the rectangle layer/using close up/copy/paste/resize to fit/duplicate and mirror
Now right click on the layer and click on luminance legacy/on the left close up
right  click on layer and choose screen

On the square layer/Open up your 2nd close up tube of choice...resize your tube and
place on the square left/resize/now sharpen if needed and add drop shadow

on the two thin rectangles I use the scull element/resize to fit and merge down/add
drop shadow

now add any other elements of your choosing...make your tag your own, you don't
have to make it like mine...it is only a guide...don't forget to add drop shadow on
all elements.

once finish adding elements...add the main tube...don't forget to add drop shadow

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.
I added a gradient glow to the word art so it could stand out/white then black

For the avatar I just used a background paper and the framed 

picture from the tag and added an element to it/make sure 
you make the frame picture again because this one will be smaller still

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

You're done!!!
Thanks for trying my tutorial
If you use send me a copy so I can show case it...thanks
