4. Copy and paste some Photoshop artwork onto the grid.
In this example, we've already created some artwork of the tea box label. It's a Photoshop document. Before we copy and paste anything, we need to make sure we have our blank layer selected. Open the label document and press Command/Ctrl+A to select all; then select Edit > Copy. With the artwork copied to the clipboard, close the document and go back to your box artwork with the new layer.
Now let's go back to the Vanishing Point filter. You should still see the grid drawn. Press Command/Ctrl+V to paste in the artwork. Select it and drag it over the grid. It's not until your cursor intersects with the grid that the artwork will wrap around your grid in perspective. Once this has happened and you get your artwork in place, click OK. The artwork should then be in perspective and on the new layer (Figure 4).
Figure 4 Paste your label artwork into the Vanishing Point grid and have it wrap around multiple faces.
