Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original

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 duplicate close original delete credits Delete raster 7 layer the Image Canvas Size 650x650 and floodfill raster 1 with white.
We will be working from the bottom up
Raster 5 and copy  : Select all/float/deflaot new layer open paper 7 c/p into selection deselect and delete template layer.
Raster 6 and copy : Select all float/deflaot open paper 3 c/p resize by 85% invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Raster 2 and copy : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 5 c/p into selection open tube c/p resize by 60% arrange invert/delete/deselect duplicate guassian blur 3.00 change the blend mode to screen and on the original tube layer change the blend mode to Lumiance(L) and add d/s then delete template layer.
Raster 3+4 : Add d/s.
Open tube c/p resize by 40% dupicate guassian blur 3.00 change the blend mode to screen and add d/s to original tube layer.

Tombstone 1 - 70% duplicate/mirror.
Wordart 1 - 60%
Journal - 45% rotate 
Symbol 2 - 40% rotate
Shattered glass - 90% move above tube 
Black Smoke - 65% mirror and move behind right tombstone
Bow 1 - 57%
Charm Dean - 55% move under the bow
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable
Add new layer  select all open paper 5 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group resize by 105%
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
