Let’s make a tag:
Open paper # 2, duplicate it and close the original.
Apply your mask and merge group.
Apply frame #2 on top of mask layer.
Using the magic wand tool highlight the inside of frame, go to selections>modify>expand>18>ok. Go to Selections>Invert.
Now open paper #22, copy and past onto canvas, press delete on keyboard then move frame element to top layer in your layers box.
Go to Image>Resize: 500x500, 72.000(resolution), and check all layers.
Now open element # 11, copy and past on top of frame layer. Activate the deform tool, place your curser on the top left of the deform box, holding down the CTRL key use your mouse to pull the box outward (making the upper part of the leprechaun to expand), deactivate deform tool.
Move frame element to top layer.
Go to the eraser tool and erase the part of the frame that is over top the leprechauns face and the bottom part (legs). This should make it appear as if the leprechaun is coming out of the frame.
Apply element # 62, resize 30%, and move to the upper left of frame.
Minimize your tag for a moment and open a new canvas 800x800, transparent.

Open element #65 and past onto canvas, resize 30%, and move it to the left of your word art. Go to Layers>duplicate and move the duplicate element to the right of your word art.
Activate your text box> apply your name>ok and place it in the center on element #62 and then convert text to raster layer.
