*Let's Get Started*
Open template duplicate close original delete credits and all 4 wordart and the tagback layers Image Canvas Size 700x675 and floodfill your background layer with white. we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
LGlitter Square : Add noise Uniform/55/Monochrome checked and add d/s.
LSquare : Select all/float/defloat  open paper 12 c/p resize by 75% arrange invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Glitter Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 1 c/p into selection, deselect and add the same noise you used before 2 times delete template layer and add d/s.
Big Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 4 c/p into selection open JingleBells c/p resize by 50% invert/delete, invert again Open main tube c/p arrange and make sure it the very top layer when your happy invert and erase any part of the bottom that hangs over deselect, duplicate tube Guassian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Softlight or whatever works best with the tube you choose and add d/s to original tube layer and delete template layer.
RGlitter Square : Repeat the same steps as you did for previous glitter square.

Purple Circle : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 6 c/p into selection open close up again c/p arrange invert/delete/deselect and change the blend mode to Overlay and delete template layer.
Now time to add the elements
I used the following
Tree 1 - 65%
Snowman - 45%
Santa - 40%
Holly - 40% rotate with pick tool.
Dove - 30%
Snowflakes - c/p duplicate 3 times for a total of 4 arrange them side by side till they cover the tag merge all 4 layers together and move behind your main tube do not add d/s.
Ornaments - Open what ones you like and resize them 15-20 rote with pick tool and cluster them together
Pine Branch 2 + 3 - 35-40 and rotate/mirror and cluster them in with the ornaments
Candy Cane - 35% rotate with pick tool 
Pepermint candy - 20%
Star - 15% and place on top of the tree
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 2 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group resize by 107% twice.
Merge visable then crop your tag.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
