*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate close original delete credits and both wordart layers then Image Canvas Size 725x600 and floodfill your background with white.
Circle 1 : Select all/float/defloat open paper 7 c/p resize by 70% invert/delete/deselect and add slight inner bevelof choice then delete template layer.
Circle 2 : repeat the same steps you did for circle 1.
Large Circle 1 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 6 c/p into selection deselect and add same bevel you used before delete template layer.
Square 2 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 10 c/p into selection deselect and delete template layer.Move to Square 1 select all/float/defloat move back to your other square and hit delete deselect and move above square 1 , add same inner bevel.
Square 1 : Select all/float/defloat tap  then add new layer open paper 5 c/p into selection open one of your tubes c/p resize if needed invert/delete/deselect and change the blend mode to Lumiance(L) and lower the opacity to 75  on the paper layer apply Blinds 5, 20, Color-#c69b64 Horizontal+Light from top checked, apply again then delete template layer.
Open your main tube c/p resize by 80% if your using the same tube the colorize it with the following settings Hue-25, Saturation - 75 add d/s.

Flower 1 - 45% duplicate and again by 80%
Angel - 40% mirror
Frame 1 - 75% twice, Free Rotate, 15, left twice and arrange see my finished tag for placement

Snowflake 2 - 30% duplicate/mirror
Branch - 35% move behind the flowers arrange erase any part of the stem that shows, duplicate/flip/mirror and arrange.
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each and to your template layers.
When your happy with your tag close off your white background layer and merge visable
