*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*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits and layer 1, Resize template 675x514 make sure all layers are checked then Image Canvas Size 725x650 and floodfill the background  with white, we can resize later I just like enough room to work
Layer 2 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 2 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Layer 3 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 4 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Layer 4 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 4 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Open tube c/p arrange and select your rectangle layer float/defloat/invert and erase the bottom of the tube deselect duplicate Guassian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Soft Light and add d/s to original tube layer.
Now Time To Add The Elements
I Used  the following
Frame 1 - 75% duplicate and place over both circles, sharpen
Element 15 - 70%
Element 5 - 45% duplicate/mirror/flip
Element 7 - 55% use your pick tool to rotate slightly then c/p again and resize by 45% and rotate in the other direction
Add anymore elements you wish and add dropshadow of choice to all your elements.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable resize to a width of 650. 
Open paper 3 apply mask/merge group duplicate/flip and arrange
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 !!
