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

*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and hearts layer, Image Canvas size 650x650 then add a new layer and send to the botton and floodfill your background layer with white, we can crop later i just like enough room to work.

Merge Rectangle 1 & 2 together select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 5 c/p into selection/deselect, delete template layer.

Thin Rectangles : select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 9 c/p into selection/deselect then delete template layer.

Dotted Rectangles : select all/float/defloat add new layer floodfill with white move back to the dotted rectangles invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.

Circle 1 : select all/float/defloat add new layer, floodfill with black then add noise Uniform/75/Monochrome checked, deselect and delete template layer.

Circle 2 : select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 10 c/p into selection now take the close up of your tube and c/p invert/delete then change the blend mode to screen  and lower the opacity to 75 then delete template layer.

Open your main tube c/p duplicate guassian blur 5.00 and change the blend mode to Soft Light and add a d/s to the original tube layer.

Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used  the following with a D/S unless otherwise stated:
Frame 6 : move above your white background layer 
Element 13+14 " 50% duplicate element 13 mirror
Element 22 : 50% free rotate left 35
Element 3 : 50%
Element 16 : 50% mirror
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements and template layers
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize if needed.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name in font of choice.
Save as a PNG and Your Done!
