I am using PSP 12 but any version should work!

We are using the amazing art of Shawn Palek  you must have a license to use this tube. Shawn’s tubes can purchased at
This beautiful scrap kit by Scrapping with Lil Ole Me  can be purchased at Heart Felt Perfections  
We will be using:

cm_cc-elveshat.png @ 15% Rotate @ 15% right
cm_cc-toy.png @20%
cm_cc-presents.png @ 40%
cm_cc-ribbon1.png @ 70%

**After you use each element close it so you have a clean workspace.
Font: I used GiddyUp size 125 but any font will work.
Okay, let’s get started!
*Open a canvas 600 x600 flood fill white. I like to have the white so I can see my creation better as I work on it.  We will delete this later.
cm_cc-p5.png  and paste as a new layer, resize 40% and mirror.
Copy your tube, paste as a new layer, resize 80%, move to the left so the arm is flush with the line.  Add white drop shadow with these settings:
Offset Verticle 5 Horizontal 5, Opacity 30, Blur 15
cm_cc-candystick2.png and paste as a new layer, resize 70% move to the right edge of your tube.

*Return to the santa hat layer, select all float, go back to the bow layer, delete select none.
*Make sure everything is where you like it, then delete the bottom white layer, and merge visible, select all, float, crop to selection.
