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 a new image 800x600 and floodfill with white we can resize later I just like enough room to work with.

Open 21 c/p resize by 75% click inside with the magic wand expand by 6 add new layer open paper 14 c/p into selection deselect and move  below your frame abd add d/s to frame.

Open 21 again c/p resize by 55% move to the right side behind your frame and paper layer click inside with your magic wand expand by 6  add new layer and open paper 1 c/p into selection open close up tube c/p arrange invert/delete/deselect and change the blend mode to screen and lower the opacity to 80, now add d/s to your frame and close off the little eyes on your layer palette leaving only the small frame, paper and tube, merge visable and resize again by 85% arrange duplicate/mirror now unhide your olther layers.

Open 48 c/p resize by 85% move to the right duplicate/mirror merge down sharpen and move above the white background layer.

Open your tube c/p resize if needed arrange over the sand duplicate Guassian Blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to Overlay and add d/s to original tube layer.

Now choose your elements
I used the following
107 - 75% duplicate/mirror
6 - 65% duplicate/mirror
104 - 60% duplicate/mirror
3 - 45% duplicate/mirror
44 - 40% and move it between your large frame and paper layer.
86 - 70% mirror
40 - 30%
7 - 35%
72 - 60%
12 - 55% move between your frame and paper layer.
38 - 40%
25 - 30% and 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 resize by 95% all layer UNCHECKED.
Select all Add new layer open paper 1 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group .
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!!
