Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize

Let's Get Started
Open template Shift+D, close original, delete credits,wordart and butterflies and tone layers, canvas size to 650x550
Highlight frame back select all/float/defloat, add new layer open paper 1 c/p into selection.do not deselect
Open tube c/p resize if needed position where you like the invert and take your eraser tool and erase the part of the tube that hangs over the bottom when happy deselect, delete template layer.

Highlight frame layer select all/float/defloat add new layer open paper 3 c/p into selection now move tube layer above the frame and again take your eraser tool and erase the tube that is over the frame. deselect, delete template layer

Hightlight tube layer, duplicate on the duplicated layer guassian blur 5.00 and change the blend mode to screen, add dropshadow to oroginal tube layer, I know i use this effect a lot but i love the softness it gives im hooked :)
Now move back to your frame layer and add noise, guassian 50, monochrome checked add dropshadow

highlight rectangle layer, and add a fat white gradient glow but add a 3rd tab and make that black
Time to add the elements

I Used : 
Flower 2 : 35%, duplicate/mirror, position, merge down, duplicate/mirror
Butterflies 2 : 70% duplicate/mirror and arrange over the black rectangle
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers

Open paper 12, new raster layer select all/paste into selection/deselect, apply mask/merge group

When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable
Resize your tag if needed Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name  save as a PNG and Your Done!
