I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions.

Supplies needed:
A tube of choice.  I'm using one by Spazz which is available from TPP
Please do not use the same tube without the appropriate license.
Font of choice.  I've used Ephesis.

VM Instant Art - Instant Background I
Rorshack Filters - Ripleyer
AAA Frames – Foto Frame
Eye Candy 5: Impact - Gradient Glow (optional)

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels

2.  Apply VM Instant Art - Instant Background I with the following settings:

Colourise your tag by going to Adjust - Hue and Saturation - Colourise
and play with the Hue and Saturation until you get a colour you like.

3.  Apply Rorshack Filters - Ripleyer with the following settings:

4.  Crop your tag to 600 x 250 pixels and apply AAA Filters - Foto Frame with the following settings:

5.  Paste your tube as a new layer, move into position and apply an appropriate drop shadow.

6.  Add a new raster layer and flood fill it white.
Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 4.  Press delete.
Selections - Select None.

7.  Remain on your white border layer.
Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 1.  Selections - Invert.
Flood fill with Black.
Selections - Select None.

8.  Add your name in font of choice.  I also added a Gradient Glow and drop shadow.
My settings for the Gradient Glow are below:

9.   Add your copyright and license number (if necessary).
And you’re done :)
