 24.  With your text tool add your name

25.  Add your copyright information, save as a jpg (which will give it a white background) or png (close off the visibility of your white background layer) which will save it as a transparent background
and you're

ALL DONE!! 

**Note** My preview shows some "noise" added to my tag. If you'd like to do that as well and don't know how to add noise to a tag you can use the "DSB Flux Filter - Bright Noise". I have written a tutorial on how to use this filter if you'd like to try the tutorial to add the noise to your tag.

You can find the tutorial
HERE

Animation really isn't necessary with this tag as it looks just as nice without ;)

Sample of tag saved as a png file below
