Element 15a - 65%
Element 10 - 75% rotate with pick tool
Element 19 - arrange duplicate/mirror/flip
Element 9 - 80% move below glitter circle layer arrange duplicate and arrange.

Element 21 - 50% rotate with pick tool.
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
