Now activate your crop tool, and crop off any access canvas that we did not use. Being careful not to crop to closely to your design. If you make a mistake just click your undo button.

Once your tag is cropped, you might want to re-size it. So go to Image and click Re-size.
In my screen shot below are the settings that I used for where I would be using this tag, but you might need to adjust your size depending on where you are going to be using your tag.
Change your settings under "Pixel Dimensions "  then set to Pixels. Also make sure your bottom box "re-size all layers" IS checked when re-sizing your whole tag.

Once that is done, go to Adjust, click Sharpness then click Sharpen.

Now all that is left is to save as PNG file & your DONE!!
