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 Resize entire template to width of 700 make sure all layers is checked then Image canvas Size 775x700 and floodfill the background layer with white, we can resize later but I like enough room to work.
Top Rectangle :
Select all/float/defloat open paper 6 c/p resize by 85% arrange invert/delete/deselect add d/s and delete template layer.
Repeat the same for Bottom Rectangle.
Top Square :

Repeat the same for Bottom Square.

repeat the same for Black Bottom Rectangle.
Select all/float/defloat open paper 11 c/p invert/delete/deselect add d/s and delete template layer.
Select all/float/defloat new layer make a gradient with 2 colors from your kit/tube i used F-#870825, B-#e664ba style Linear Angle/45, Repeats/3, Invert not checked floodfill your layer with your gradient, Apply Blinds, 8,20,Black,Both boxes checked, now open your tube c/p resize by 75% arrange invert/delete/deselect now duplicate your tube mirror and change the blend mode to screen, then crop opaque to remove the excess tube left over.
Open tube again c/p resize by 65% arrange duplicate guassian blur 3.00 change the blend mode to Screen and add d/s to original tube layer.

Skull 1 - 25% rotate with pick tool
Letter - 35% rotate with pick tool
Dripped Heart - 30%
Skullerfly - 30% rotate with pick tool

Wordart - move above your white background layer
Sparkles - move above the spiderweb
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 resize by 90% all layers NOT checked.
