    In this tutorial we are going to make a "Floating Tab". It is basically a technique of using drop shadow on objects to give them a FLOATING look. Ok, so lets start now.

    Step:1

    Create a new document and draw a tab of 250 x 35 pixels. Dimensions may vary according to the requirements.
    Now fill that rectangle with any color of your choice.

    Step:3

    Now take the polygonal lasso tool and draw shape like this,

    Step:4

    Now change the opacity to 32%. This is the final result I came up with
