Ready to Start ...

Open your template, hit shift & d on the keyboard to duplicate, now you can close the original template. I resized here, go to image, resize and make sure resize all layers is checked, resize by 85%, smart size.
Add a new raster layer, flood fill white and move to bottom of your canvas. Still on the white background layer, go to image, canvas size and resize to 500x500, make sure all layers is unchecked this time, floodfill white, this gives us more room to work and you can crop & resize finished tag later on.

Click on Circle 1 layer, selections, select all, select float, select defloat then paste paper of choice as a new layer, resize paper if you want then go to selections, select invert & hit delete on your keyboard, select none. Delete the original layer.
Go to effects and select eye candy 4000, gradient glow, make a thick boarder on your circle with the following settings :-
Glow Width - 5.00...Soft Corners - 25... Overall Opacity - 100... Color - White... Setting - Fat. Add a dropshadow to this layer.

Click on the Frame Background 1 layer and repeat above with a different paper of your choice.
Do not add the gradient glow to this layer.

Click on the Frame Background 2 layer and repeat step 1 with a different paper of your choice.
Do not add the gradient glow to this layer.

Click on the Frame 1 layer, I left mine black and added a dropshadow.

Repeat step for Frame layer 2.

Make sure your on the top layer of your canvas and paste your tube as a new layer, resize to your liking & place where you want it. Add a dropshadow.

Paste the wordart 3 from the kit and position at the top of your tag, resize if needed.

Now paste any other elements from the kit, resize and plac where you want them. Dropshadow elements.

Go to bottom white layer and paste a paper of choice, resize this if needed, go to layers, load mask from disk and select the mask you want to use, Make sure the following settings are set... Fit to canvas - checked Source luminace - checked Invert transparency - unchecked Hide Mask - checked then go to layers, merge group & resize to suit your tag using the deform tool to stretch it out a bit if needed.
