In your layers pallet, move your Paper 6 layer below your Element 47 (Frame) layer.

Now click on your element 47/frame layer, and go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.
Then go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow. Set your settings to your liking & click Ok.

Sharpen & apply a drop shadow.

In your layers pallet, click on your very bottom layer,
Open Paper 5, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas, now because this paper is soooo huge, you will need to re-size it several times, so what I did was re-size it to 65%, about 3 times, then I believe I re-sized it to 80%. You want it so that all 4 sides of the paper are visible within your canvas.
Then go to Layers, click Load/Save Mask, then from the slide out menu click Load Mask From Disk, once that window opens choose your mask of choice then click Load.

Once you mask has loaded on your canvas, go to your layers pallet, right click on your Mask layer & click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Group. Now re-size your mask to 80%.

Now using your move tool position your mask to the left side of your frames. Then go to your layers pallet, right click on your mask layer & click Duplicate.
Then go to Image & click Mirror.
Use your move tool to adjust the position of your duplicated mask layer if needed.

Now click back up on your very top layer in your layers pallet.
Activate your text tool, set your font, size & color.
The font I used was :
Happy
Size : 70 Pixels
Color : I chose a different color from my tag for each letter in the name I used.

Then apply your  name, then position it exactly where you want it on your tag, then go to your layers pallet, right click on your name layer then click Convert To Raster Layer.
Then go to Effects, click Plugins, then click Eye Candy 4 - Gradient Glow. Set your settings & click Ok.

Now apply a drop shadow to your name.

If you wish to give your text the glass effect, 
Activate your magic wand tool, then click inside each letter in the name on your tag.
Then once all letters are selected go to Effects, click Plugins then click Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Glass, you can either use my settings below or your own :


Click Ok.

Now with your letters still selected go to Adjust, click Add/Remove Noise, then click Add Noise. Set to Uniform, 40 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked. Then click Ok.

Now go to Selections & click Select None.

Now add your copyright /credit information! (Important not to forget this part)

Once everything is on your tag placed where you want it, go to your layers pallet, right click on any layer,then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click Merge Visible.

Now activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that we did not use.

Once you have cropped your tag, you will want to re-size it.
Once your tag is re-sized, go to Adjust , click Sharpness, then click Sharpen. To give it that extra sharpen.

All that is left is for you to save your tag as a PNG file & your done!
Thanks for trying my tutorial!!
