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 canvas 700x600 and Floodfill Raster 1 layer with white, We can resize later I just like having enough room to work with.

Raster 2 : 
Select all/float/defloat open paper 7 c/p resize by 85% invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer add noise Uniform/30/Monochrome Checked and add d/s.

Raster 3 : 
Select all/float/defloat add new layer open paper 4 c/p into selection deselect and delete template layer.

Raster 6 : 
Add noise Random/45/Monochrome Checked, sharpen and add d/s.

Raster 7 : 
Add d/s.

Raster 4 : 
Select a circle with your magic wand contract by 2 add new layer and floodfill with your gradient Linear 45/repeats 0/invert unchecked now open your close up tube, c/p resize by 90% arrange invert/delete/deselect duplicate tube Guassian blur 3.00 change the blend mode to Overlay and on original tube layer change to Lumiance(L).
Now do the same for the other 2 circles play around with the blend modes and mirror your tube and change the angle of the gradient, this is all about how you want the tag to look, when complete delete template layer.

Raster 5 : 
Repeat same steps you used for raster 6.

Open main tube c/p arrange duplicate guassian blur 3.00 change the blend mode to Soft Light add d/s to original tube layer.

Time to add the elements I used the following
Chain Link - 45% move above white background layer top right duplicate/mirror/flip merge down and add d/s.
Cupcake 2 - 30%
Bow 1 - 30% arrange duplicate 2x 85% mirror one arrange both.
Skully Lights - 75% move behind main tube layers.
Skull 1 - 30%
Skull 2 - 30% colorize H-193/S-57 mirror
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 UNCHECKED.
Select all Add new layer open paper 1 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group  resize by 105%.
Merge visable then resize as desired.
Add your copyright, I add mine after i have resized it it keeps it crisp and clear.
Add your name in font of choice.
Save as a PNG and Your Done!!
