I absolutely love these little dogs! Okay maybe its because I have one…lol. Anyway Precious will be two this Christmas so I just had to make a tag for her. Of course, you can use a tube of your choice for this, any Christmas one will work.

Open a new image 700 x 700 with a white background.

Copy and paste the background image as a new layer.

Copy and paste the window as a new image above the background image.

Copy and paste the tube as a new layer, place on top of the open windows, erase any thing that’s out past the bottom of the window. Apply a drop shadow.

Open Candy 03 and resize by 20 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place on top of the swag near the top. Apply a drop shadow, duplicate, mirror. Duplicate again and move to the garland next to the bow on the right hand side, duplicate and mirror.

Open Snowflake 02 and resize by 15 percent. Copy and paste as a new layer. Place on top of the swag on the left hand side next to the poinsettia. Apply a drop shadow. Duplicate, mirror.

Open Flower 03 and resize by 20 percent, copy and paste as a new layer. Place in front of the gold candle on the left, apply a drop shadow. Duplicate and mirror.

Add your name and any copyrights.

Now if you don’t want to animate it just crop, resize if desired and save as a png. If you are animating read on…lol.

Okay, for animation… copy all layers merged.

Open Animation Shop and the snow animation included in my supplies. Paste as a new animation in Animation Shop. Duplicate 20 times. Make sure you have all layers selected. Also make sure all layers are selected in the snow animation.

Go to Edit and select Propagate Paste.

Drag the first frame off the snow into the first frame of the tag. Do this until you have the tag covered. You may have to Undo the snow animation so you can copy it again.

Go to View and select Animation, if your happy with it save as a .gif.
