Tube and close up of Choice. I am using the awesome art of Ismael Rac. If you want to use the same image you MUST purchase it HERE and have the proper license to do so.

I used an awesome scrapkit by Monica which you can download HERE

Filters - Xero Porcelain, Lokas 3d shadow, Eye Candy 4000 gradient glow.

Font of choice, I used Airstream NF.

Let's start!

Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white.

Copy and paste frame 3 as a new layer. Image resize 80%. Using your magic wand, select inside the frame, selections modify, expand by 5. Copy and paste a paper under your frame layer, I used paper 18. Selections, invert, delete. Don't deselect yet. Copy and paste your close up tube, delete, select none.

Effects, Xero Porcelain, with these settings:

Duplicate the close up, on the duplicate, adjust blur, gaussian blur, change the blend mode to soft light. On the original, change the blend mode to Luminance Legacy, and drop shadow. Also drop shadow the frame layer. Close your white background layer and merge visible. You might need to crop your tag if your tube was hanging over the edges.

Copy and paste your tube & place how it looks best. I moved the frame layer towards the top left side of the tag. On the tube layer, apply Xero Radiance with these settings:

Apply Lokas 3d shadow with my favourite settings:

Now it's time to add some elements, to make your tag your own! This is what I did.

Copy & paste word art of choice, I used Trick or Treat, wordart 1, and re-sized 80% twice. Apply Eye Candy 4000 Gradient glow, fat. Drop shadow. Add a ribbon under the wordart layer, drop shadow.

Copy and paste the cat & re-size to about 40%. Drop shadow.

Copy and paste a lollipop, re-size 50%. Using your pick or deform tool (hit the D key), rotate a bit, see mine for angle I used.

Copy and paste bag 4, re-size 40%, drop shadow.

Copy and paste wirebeads 1 under your tube layer, drop shadow.

Copy and paste glitterstars above your background layer, and arrange as you wish.

Add your name.

Close your white background layer & crop merged opaque. Re-size tag to whatever you like, I usually use just under 600 x 600.

Now, add your artists credits and you are finished!!
