    nice tut, but there's a prob with step 2) after you make a the shape with the rectangular marquee tool, and fill the background with black colour, and the shape is still selected you make a layer via copy for the shape so that it doesnt effect the background.....Hope that helps!:D

    I just want to say that this is not what real Army dog tags look like. The edges should be raised a little, I embossed them. Also, the tag is too long.
