How to Create a Blog Button with a Grab Box

Hello Everyone, Today I am going to show you how to create a Blog button with a grab box below. This tutorial should work on most blog platforms that allow you to add custom HTML widgets. You can place your widget either on your blog sidebar or footer. Personally, I like to have my blog button on my sidebar. I feel that it is easier to find that way. However, do what works best for you.
STEP 1: First off you are going to need an image with a size under 200x200px. You can have a larger one if you choose, however most people are more likely to use your button if it is on the smaller size. Ideally, the size of your button should be either 125x125px or 150x150px. I find that these sizes are the most commonly used. My blog button is 150x150px. Now you can create a blog button image using Photoshop, however personally I use PicMonkey. Once you have created your image, you are ready for the next step.
STEP 2: Next you will need to upload your image to a image hosting service like Picasa or
