*NOTES*
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
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated 
And see my finished tag for placement

*Let's Get Started*
NOTE - i am making 2 versions of this tag 1 with the female tube and one with out, some elements will be placed differently and a few wont be used in the male tag, but feel free to use what you like.

Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and frame bottom and blue inner layers, Image canvas Size 750x650 add a new layer send to bottom and floodfill with white we can resize later I just like enough room to work.

Half Circle : Select all/float/defloat open paper 10 c/p resize by 65% invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.

Half Circle Frame : Select all/float/defloat new layer and floodfill with black add noise Guassian/60/Monochrome Checked, deselect and delete template layer.

Black Strip : Select all/float/defloat open paper 4 c/p invert/delete and deselect and delete template layer.

Blue Strip : Select all/float/defloat open paper 7 c/p invert/delete and deselect, delete template layer.

Grey Strip : Select all/float/defloat new layer floodfill with black, Texture Effects Weave with the following settings

Deselect and delete template layer.

Black Inner Right : Select all/float/defloat open paper 9 c/p invert/delete/invert again , open male tube 1 c/p resize and position invert again and erase the parts of the tube that overhangs on the sides and bottom, deselect and duplicate tube Guassian Blur 4.00 change the blend mode to Soft Light and add d/s to original tube layer,delete template layer.

Frame Right : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 3 c/p into selection deselect and add noise Uniform/30/Monochrome checked, now erase the part of the fram that covers the head,this is a little tricky, Zoom in and erase just a section of the frame that covers the head then move frame behind your tube layers, Now select the frame again float/defloat and erase any of the tube that is between the martching ants you will have to do this for both layers deselect and add a thin black gradient glow and delete template layer.

Black Inner Left : repeat the same steps as you did for Black Inner Right But use another male tube.
Frame Left : Repeat the same steps as you did for the Frame Left.

Open Female tube c/p resize position between both male tubes duplicate Guassian Blur 4.00 and change the blend mode to Overlay and add d/s to original tube layer.

Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used  the following
Flower 1 : 35% arrange/duplicate
Ribbon 6 : 80% move behind the roses and erase the parts that are extending , ( Note i did not use the ribbon in the male only tag)
Key : 35% free rotate/right/45/all layers unchecked
Screw : 45% position and duplicate/mirror and position
Ribbon 5 : 50% mirror and move above your white background layer
Coffin 2 : 65% free rotate/left/30/all layers unchecked and move your half oval frame layer.
Splatter 1 : 50% position above your white background layer duplicate/mirror/flip do not add d/s
Print 2 : 80% do not add d/s
Print 4 : 65% flip( I only used this in the Male tag) do not add d/s
Barbed Wire : 45% move behind the left rose 
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 to a width of 650 Height will adjust itself. 
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!
