Variations
For this example, I used Eye Candy 3 for the Motion Trail (settings here).  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
For this example, I added Noise (change 50 to 75) to Copy of Text rather than Text.  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
For this example, I used two glitter tiles (blue and red) for the Flood Fill steps #10 and #14.  I used Eye Candy 3 for the Motion Trail (same settings as just above).  If you know how to work with glitters, then you may be able to figure out how to make this one.  Instead of having one Text layer and one Copy of Text, you'd have three.  Do not add Noise in step #30.
For this example, I added a fireworks tube by Rainbow Coffi here (top row center).  I "colorized" the dark blue trails with the Change To Target Brush Tool (Default settings), Foreground Color #0000C0.  Then I resized the tube (Shift+S) by 50% (Smart Size, Lock Aspect Ratio checked).  Then I added a "drop shadow".  I Copied the tube and Pasted As a New Layer above Text (after step #29).  Then I Moved the tube a little, so that one of the stars of the tube was aligned on top of a star in the text (first star on letter B).  I made Text active (step #30) to add the Noise , then made the tube layer active to also add Noise (change 50 to 25).  At step #32, I had to Undo three (3) times instead of one to get back to Text.  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
Thank you to Vicky B. for coming up with the idea to add this tube to the text!  For this example, I added a different fireworks tube here (creator unknown).  I resized the tube (Shift+S) by 65% (Smart Size, Lock Aspect Ratio checked).  Then I added a "drop shadow".  I Copied the tube and Pasted As a New Layer above Text (after step #29).  Then I Moved the tube a little, so that one of the stars of the tube was aligned on top of a star in the text (first star on letter M).  I made Text active (step #30) to add the Noise , then made the tube layer active to also add Noise (change 50 to 20).  At step #32, I had to Undo three (3) times instead of one to get back to Text.  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
For this example, I used CircuitBoredNF font.  For the Flood Fill steps, I set the Foreground Color=#40FF40 and Background Color=#000000.  Both Foreground and Background are set to Gradient (Angle=90, Repeats=1).  Check Invert on the Background Gradient.



I Flood Filled the top half of the selection (step #10) with the Foreground Gradient, then Flood Filled the bottom half (step #14) with the Background Gradient.  I reduced the Length of the Motion Trail to 20 (step #24).  I Expanded the selection by 2 rather than 3 (step #25).  I omitted step #27.  I changed the Noise setting from 50 to 25 (step #30).  All other steps of the tutorial are the same.
