Open a new 700 x 700 image.  Also open my cluster frame -
Copy and paste as new layer onto your new image.
Using your selection tool set to rectangle, draw out a rectangle
just a little bigger than the inside part of the frame.
Choose a paper from the kit - Resize 70% - Copy and paste
as new layer.  Selections - Invert - Delete.  KEEP SELECTED.

Copy the tube of the girls sitting - No need to resize -
Paste as new layer onto your tag image.  Place where
you'd like - Then duplicate.  Move the duplicate layer
all the way to the top.  Keep the original under the frame - Hit
delete.  Select none.  Add a drop shadow of 2, -2, 60, 5 - Black.
Make the duplicate tube layer active - Using your eraser tool,
erase parts of the girls that show beyond the frame.
Their bottoms, parts of their arms, etc.  Look at my tag
if needed.

Here are a couple elements I threw into the frame with the girls.

Element 19 - Resized 40% - Placed above the (original) girls tube,
below the frame. Drop shadow.

Element 21 (wheel) - Resized 30% - Place below the original girls
tube - right behind the one in red.  Drop shadow.

Element  - Resized 50% - Placed above the background frame layer
and just below the wheel.  Drop shadow.

X Out your bottom layer - Merge visible.
Resize your merged layer only - to 90%
(make sure all layers is unchecked)
Un X the bottom layer and make active.
Open element 7 - Resize 85% - Copy and paste
as new layer.  Place onto the right top corner of the image.
Duplicate - Mirror - Merge down - Duplicate - Mirror - Flip -
Merge down.  Now move this layer below the merged
tag layer.  Lower the opacity to about 80%.

Now open up element 13 - Resize 85% - Copy and paste
as new layer onto the left side of the tag, below the frame
layer.  Duplicate - Mirror.  Drop shadow.

Merge visible.  Crop opaque - resize to your liking.
Add your name and all copyright info.
Save as .png for a transparent background and .jpg
for a white background.

I hope I didn't confuse you too much.
Thanks for stopping by and trying my tut out.
