Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer Unless otherwise stated
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 duplicate close original delete credits and the top 3 layers and dotted line 1 and strip 1, Image Canvas Size 675x675. we can resize later but I like enought room to work.
Rectangle 1 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 10 c/p into selection deselect and delete add slight inner bevel add d/s of choice then template layer.
Glitter Circle 1 + 2 : Sharpen and add d/s.
Circle 1 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 7 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Rectangle 2 : Repeat the same steps as you did for Rectangle 1.
Circle 2 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 6 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Open tube c/p resize by 90% arrange duplicate Guassian BLur 3.00 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
Snow - erase the tiny bit of snow, arrange then duplicate 3 times andarrange snow over tube.
Tree - 85% move behind snow
Sign - 70%
Bird - 50%
Birdhouse - 35%
Leaf 1 - 85% mirror
Branch 2 - 85%
Owl - 45%
Bauble - 35% mirror, duplicate 80% mirror and arrange

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 8 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group resize by 107% duplicate and change the blend mode to Multipy merge down and add noise Uniform/20/Monochrome checked.
