“Old Libery” is a tagger size scrap kit created by Pixie of KissedbyPix Design and can be purchased from her store TKO Scraps. You can visit her blog here.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

Copy and paste Patriotic Swag 2 as a new layer below the frame.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Make your Selections Tool active set on Rectangle.

Move both rectangles into position - see my tag for reference.

Make your Selection Tool active again set on Circle.
Place your curser in the center of your canvas and pull outward until you have a circle that’s barely outside the rectangles.
New Raster layer.
Copy and paste Stripes Paper Into Selection.
Apply the same Glow effect.

Copy and paste Banner Blue as a new layer.

Foreground and Background set to white.
Using the Shit Happens font type out the words “Independence Day”.
Convert to Raster layer.
Use your Pick Tool to angle it over the left side of the banner.

Change the font to Vivaldi and type out “1776”.
Move it into position over the right side.

Darken the striped paper at the end of the stick pin to give the effect it’s stuck in there.
