    This tutorial was written in psp 9, but will work within other versions.
    I used the awesome art of Myka Jelina, available on licence at CILM in order to use this image you must visit them and purchase the appropriate package on licence.
    A nice easy tutorial, using basic tools within your PSP program!
    Open up your tubein PSP, and then minimise it
    Ok, open yourself a new White canvas sized at 500 x 500
    Next, add a new raster layer.
    Select Star 3 from your Preset shapes, choosing colours to match or contrast with your tube
    I am using Foreground # b9b2ee and for the background I used gradient mqc May.
    Now, hold down shift so you get and even shape, and drag across the canvas, to form a star that fills the majority of the canvas ( leave some border though)
    OK, now we are going to add a drop shadow...
    Effects > Drop Shadow>
    use the following settings :~ Vertical 2, Horizontal 9 Opacity 75, Blur 7.0 colour Black ( 404040 )
    OK, and then another drop shadow, this time with the following settings :~
    Vertical 11, Horizontal -5, Opacity, Blur and colour as before.
    Now, in the layers pallete, duplicate this layer.
    Highlight the duplicate copy, and go to Image > Resize and resize to 90%.
    Staying on that layer we are going to rotate it....
    Image > Rotate > Free Rotate> Rotate Right 25 degrees.
    Now, duplicate the layer we just worked on, and repeat the resize, and the rotate, but go 25 degrees left this time.
    Once you have 3 star layers, X out the white background layer, and Merge Visable..You end up with this:
    Right, Step 2!
    Adding the tube!
    restore the tube you select at the beginning, and Copy it, then close of the origional.
    Click back onto your canvas, then Edit > Paste > Paste as New Layer.
    Resize your tube if ness/ so it fits the star.
    Add a Drop Shadow to your tube :~
    Vert and Hor set at 5 each, Opacity 75 and Blur 5 Colour #404040.
    Now please add the (and watermark or taggers mark if you use)
    Now Merge Visable!
    Last Step!
    On a New Layer we are gonna add our Text!
    So choose your font, I used Broadway BT, but any Bold, big flat style font works well for this one!
    So Broadway BT, size 72
    Select colours that compliment your tube and star ( I am using foreground # 108770 and background # 70cfb5)
    Enter your text and apply it.
    Now use the nodes to stretch out the text to fit the points of the star and position to your liking...
    Now add a Drop Shadow, using the same settings you used for the Tube layer.
    Merge Visible.
    use the crop tool to get rid of excess white and Save your Tag !
