For this tutorial you will need the following:

Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

Tube of choice, I am using the artwork of Lilith Morana, which you need a license to use. You can get it at AIL, here.

Scrap kit of choice. I am using Gothabilly, a PTU kit by Pimp'd Designs, which you can find here at Pimp My Tag With Scraps.

Template #141 by Addictive Templates which you can find here.

Font of choice, I am using Sick Capital Vice

Plugins: No outside plugins

Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.

Let's get started!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate, close the original.

Resize to about 600 x 600 pixels, then change the canvas size to about 700 x 700 or so so you have room to work.

Delete the credits layer.

Fill each of the layers with papers from the kit by making the layer active (click on it) in your layer palette. Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, invert. Copy and paste the paper as a new layer, and click delete on your keyboard. Deselect, add a drop shadow & delete the original template layer.

Do the same with the different layers of word art, raster 14, raster 12, & raster 10. I filled mine with papers and then erased the paper part that covered in letters I didn't want filled. (like in the words that say "play nice" i filled with a dark purple paper, then erased all but the letter p & y). 

Merge all your word art layers together. 

Add your tube, add a drop shadow to the tube. 

Drag your word art over or down a little to make it look good with the tube.

Add your elements. I used:

Print 1
Ribbon 1 (erase some of the left side to fit)

Crop, resize, add text, credits and copyright as needed & save.
