For this example, I have added the words "Welcome Autumn!" to my tag.

I have used the font, Bickley Script LET Plain: 1.0, size 26, stroke=0.2. For the Foreground and Background Patterns, I used the orange spice glitter images.

I have created a file with this same text (both with and without the exclamation point and with and without a drop shadow).  If you would like to add this text to your tag, click here and save the png file to your computer.  After step #22, open this file in PSP and select around the size that you want to use with the Freehand Selection Tool (just like you did with the autumn tubes), float the selection, copy it, and then paste it as a new layer on your working canvas.  Then position the text with the Move Tool.  Continue at step #23.
For this example, I have added an inner bevel to each of the glitter layers
and then applied Eye Candy 4000 Glass (rather than using SuperBladePro).

These settings below can be used to substitute for the SuperBladePro step #11.

Effects > 3D Effects > Inner Bevel


Then apply Eye Candy 4000 Glass.

Effects > Plugins > Eye Candy 4000 > Glass

First reset all tab settings to factory default.

Settings > Reset to factory default (F5)

Then apply these settings to the Basic tab.

Bevel Width=6.99
Inside marquee=checked
Edge Darkening=3
Gradient Shading=0
Glass Color=#FFFFFF

Then after applying the glass, sharpen twice.
