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

Ok this will be a fairly quick tutorial but just as fun I hope
We will be using a ready made cluster and adding some goodies from the matching kit, so let your imagination run wild, thats always fun :)

*Let's Get Started*
Open Cluster 2 duplicate and close original then  image canvas size 725x725 add new layer and send to the bottom floodfill with white and delete the mask layer as we will be adding a different mask and delete raster 9 we will be adding a different bunny.
Open your rectangle selection tool and select over the frame open paper 13 c/p resize by 75% arrange down so more sky than grass shows invert/delete/deselect and move below the frame and crop to remove excess .
Open tube c/p  arrange above the frame now duplicate guassian blur 3.00 and change the blend mode to overlay and add d/s to original tube layer.
Duplicate Copy Of Raster 3 and arrange so we have a pigger patch of grass
Select raster 2 resize by 75%
~Time to add the elements I used the following~
Open 114 - c/p resize by 50% and arrange behind raster 3
Open 127 - c/p resize by 45% mirror and arrange behind the frame layer 
Open 74 - c/p resize by 60% and arrange behind copy of raster 3
Open 79 - c/p resize by 60% and arrange with 74
Open 73 - c/p resize by 60% mirror
Open 118 - c/p resize by 45%
Open 109 - c/p resize by 65% mirror and arrange behind tube
Open 44 - c/p resize by 50% arrange behind tube
Open 115 - c/p resize by 45% and arrange between the frame and paper layer
Open 112 - c/p resize by 35%
Open 102 - c/p resize by 25% duplicate/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
Select all Add new layer open paper 13 c/p into selection apply mask/merge group resize by 95%.
