Let's start!

Open a new 600 x 600 pixel image.
Set your background color to DAB785 and your foreground to null.
On your image... take the vector shapes tool and draw out a medium sized
rectangle.  Not too big, save room at the sides for deco.
Once satisfied with your rectangle, while still in vector mode, Objects -
Align - Center of canvas.  Then convert to a raster image.

While still on the rectangle layer - Select all - Float - Defloat -
Modify - Contract by 25.  Apply and hit delete.  Apply a texture.
Effects - Texture Effects - Texture - Choose crumpled paper
and apply with the settings below:

Apply.  Effects - 3D Effects - Inner Bevel with the settings
below :

Apply.  Now let's grab that magic wand - Click inside the frame
area - Selections - modify - by 2.  Choose a paper from the kit,
no need to resize - Copy and paste as a new layer.  Selections -
Invert - Delete.  Select none. Move the paper layer just below the
frame layer.

Ready to move on??  Good deal! :o)
Let's grab one of the decos, I chose tp-decto4 - Resize 20%.
Copy and paste as a new layer - Move below the paper layer and
arrange to the left top side of the tag.  Duplicate - Mirror - Flip.
Merge down and apply a drop shadow of 2, -2, 50, 8 - Black.
Now let's take one of the floral decos I chose tp-flower stern2 - Resize
40% Copy and paste on the left bottom side of tag.  Duplicate - Mirror -
Flip. Merge down.  Apply same drop shadow as before.

Now I'll list for you the elements I used and how I resized them.
This is all merely just a choice on how you'd like to make your tag.

tp-butterfly8 - Resized 15% (duplicated and mirrored)
tp-Heart String4 - Resized 40%
tp-bow 2- Resized 25%
tp-bow4 - Resized 20%
tp-bird 2 and 4 - Resized 25%

Apply the drop shadow used before to each of those element layers.

Now to the tube!
Make your paper layer active - Select all - Float - Defloat-
Choose the tube of your choice from the kit, if using the one I did,
resize 60%.  Copy and Paste as a new layer.  Selections - Invert - Delete.
Select none.  Now make the very top layer active - And repaste your tube
again.  Align it with the bottom tube layer - Using your eraser,
erase the parts of her feet that go beyond the frame.  When
satisfied... Apply the same drop shadow to the bottom tube
layer and the frame.  X out the bottom raster layer and merge visible.
Resize JUST THE MERGED LAYER to 500 pixels.

Duplicate your image.  On the bottom image layer - Adjust
blur - Gaussian 10.  Effects - Texture effects - Mosaic Antique - With the settings below:

Then apply DSB flux with the settings below:

Apply.  Do this 3 more times. (For a total of 4)
 Back on the top image layer - Resize 95%.
That's it!  Merge the two visible, resize to your liking.
Add what ever wording, copyright and name to your tag.
Save as .png for a transparent background and .jpg for a white

I hope you enjoyed this tut and it wasn't too confusing to you!!
Thanks :o)
