Open up the template. Shift +D. Close out the original.
Delete the copyright layer.

Repeat the above step for all the layers.

In your color pallet make your foreground black. Close out your backbround.
Using your Elipse tool make a huge circle on your canvas.

You can always click on your Pick Tool and make the circle wider if you need to so that the words won't be on such a sharp curve.
Change the colors in your color pallet to colors that will match your tag/tube. Stroke set at 2.
Move your cursor over the circle until you see a Rocking A.
Click our mouse. A text box will appear.
Type the words Rub a dub dub (or whatever you like)
Click on the + next to Vector Circle.
Close out the New Ellipse layer.
Right click on the Vector 1 layer.
Convert to Raster layer.
On the duplicate layer:
Adjust/Blur/Gaussian blur
Radius 3.00

On the original name layer apply the same Noise as you used on the frames.

Type your name.
Duplicate and repeat the above steps.

Add your cpoyrights.

Highlight your white canvas.
New Raster layer.
Select All.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.
Select none.
Apply the mask.
Merge Group.

Crop your image.

Resize all layers 85%.
