Once you are completely happy with your tag - go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge - then click Merge Visible. (Do not click Merge All (flatten) as that will give you a white background, that you don't want.)

Once you have all layers Merged. Activate your Crop Tool - crop off any access canvas that you did not use. Being careful not to crop to closely to your tag.

Once you have done that - you may or may not want to re-size your tag as a whole. Once I re-size a completed tag I apply a sharpen to it.
To do that - go to Adjust - click Sharpness - then click Sharpen.

Now all that is left is to save your tag as a PNG file & you have completed this tutorial!!♥
