Kit- "USA" by Addictive Pleasures here
Tube- I'm using Keith Garvey, at PTE. You must have a valid license to use this work.
Template- "Hotter Than a Firecracker" by Creative Scraps by Crys here
Font- Scriptina, a FTU font here
Plug Ins- EC4>glass and gradient glow

Here we go :)

Open your template, Ctrl+D,close out the original
delete Raster 1 and Copy of Raster 1
Image>canvas size 750x750 so you have room to work
I like to add a layer to the bottom and flood fill with white, and delete it when I'm done

Select layers of your template and replace with papers from the kit.
I used:
Raster 7- p3
Raster 8- p2
Raster 2- p11
Raster 4- Add noise
Untitled- p12
Raster 3- add new raster layer, fill with black
Raster 6- p10

Highlight Raster 9.
Bevel Width- 30
Smoothness- 75
Inside marquee
Edge Darkening- -1
Gradient Shading- 35
Refraction- 50

Glass color- white
Direction- 135

Add gradient glow

Highlight Raster 9
Using your manual color correction tool,
pick a color from your papers to change it to
Apply EC4 glass, same settings
gradient glow, same settings

Now decorate your tag with elements.
Resize, sharpen and add drop shadows where needed
I used:
beads- duplicate/mirror
star2- duplicate/mirror
stringbow- duplicate/mirror
fireworks2- duplicate/mirror

Now add your main tube choice
on top tube layer:
Adjust>blur>gaussian blur 3
change blend mode, I used Hard Light
Lower opacity to around 76
drop shadow bottom tube layer

crop and resize your tag
add license and copyright info
