**** HINTS ****
It has been drawn to my attention that the kit is much larger than indicated in this tutorial. My apologies, I must have resized the kit when I downloaded it last year .  I always start my resizing by  85%, and I resize until I get it to the size that comfortably suits my tag , so if this helps , resize the elements by 85% for as many times as you need it to be. Consider this a " challenge "  and enjoy it !
