Always remember to duplicate your tube and close original

D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
Elements are added with a D/S unless otherwise stated

61 - 65% mirror/flip
7 - 70% duplicate/mirror/flip
45 - 90% and erase excess chain

51 - 70% then again by 90% move behind the top frame above your tube layer and erase any part that sticks out of the bottom of the frame .
40 - 55% rotate with pick tool
71 - move to the top of your tag
21 - duplicate/mirror/flip
Add anymore elements you wish and a dropshadow to each.
