Save your tag often. Nothing like working long and hard on a tag and PSP crashes.

Open Paper 12 and duplicate. Close original.
Select your crop tool and at the top on your preset bar, enter 700 x 700.
Move your crop box so your are selecting the lower left hand side of this paper.
The paper is 1000 x 1000 so you can pick anywhere really, but for my tag I chose the lower left hand side. Double click on tag or click apply (green check mark).
Apply mask 0138. Go to Layers, new mask layer, from Image and select in drop down box. Merge group. Duplicate layer and merge down.

Copy and paste element 212 as a new layer. Re-size by 30% and move a little off center to the left. Add drop shadow.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and re-size by 70% if you are using the Danny Lee pirate tube. Add drop shadow.
C/P element 223 as a new layer and re-size by 45%. Position to the left of your tube. Add drop shadow.
C/P element 221 as a new layer and re-size by 92%. Position below your tube in layers palette and near bottom on the tag. Duplicate. On bottom skeleton layer, add a gaussian blur of 2. On the top layer change blend mode to Soft Light.
C/P element 208 as a new layer and re-size by 30%. Sharpen image. Place monkey on the barrel. Add drop shadow.

C/P element 177 as a new layer and move down in layers to just above the mask layer. Move to the edge of mask (upper left hand side). Change blend mode to Multiply.
C/P element 170 as a new layer and re-size by 50%. Position behind your tube layer and to the right side of tag. Add drop shadow.
Repeat for element 156. Position to the left side of tag, near the barrel.
Copy and paste element 134 as a new layer and position behind the boxes and in front of your ship.
C/P element 112 as a new layer and re-size by 25%. Place on a box.

C/P element 40 as a new layer and re-size by 50%. Place bottom of tag, near tube's foot. Add drop shadow.
C/P element 20 as a new layer. Re-size by 30%. Duplicate. Place one bomb near monkey's hand on the boxes. Place the other at bottom of tag in front of boxes (crates).

Mirror this one.
C/P element 14 and re-size by 30%. Place at bottom near barrel.
C/P element 6 and re-size by 30%. Place at bottom on right hand side.
C/P element 27 as a new layer and re-size by 60%. Place behind crates on the left hand side of tag. If you need to adjust some elements do so. Add drop shadow.
C/P skulls (element 4) and re-size by 60%. Duplicate and mirror one layer.
Place some behind your tube at her feet and place some in front of crates and barrel.
C/P cross (63) and re-size by 43%. Position on front of one of the crates (left side of tag).
C/P 108 and re-size by 31%, place on crate.
C/P 226 and re-size by 22%, place on barrel and change blend mode to overlay.

Ok now make it your own and add any other elements you like.
Make sure all your layers have drop shadow, except of layers that have a blend mode applied to it.
Add artist copyright. I used font LD Marooned. Save your tag as a PNG file.
