Kit- Gothic Halloween by Kittz Kreationz here
Tube- Akkasshaa, coming soon to PSP Tubes Emporium..keep your eyes peeled!! 
Font- Bank Gothic or font of choice
Template- kktempz33 from Kanid Kissez here
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I'm on a Mac, so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl.

Here we go :)

Open your template. Image>Duplicate. Close out original.
Delete Credit layer and white background layer.
We're gonna work this template from bottom to top...
Select the Top Red Circle layer by holding Command while clicking the icon in the layer window.
Add paper of choice (I used p1). Select>Inverse. Hit Delete on paper layer. 
Delete original template layer.
Repeat with Bottom Red Circle layer.
Select the Black Circle layer. Add close up of tube into selection.
Select>Inverse. Hit Delete on tube layer. 
Command+U to bring up Hue/Saturation window. Lower Saturation to 0 to greyscale the tube.
Change Blend Mode to Hard Light. Deselect. 
Activate Black Rectangle layer. Filter>Noise>Add Noise at 25%, Gaussian, Monochromatic.
Select the Frame Back layer. Resize and add Paper 6 like above.
Before you deselect, add tube to right side of frame back, above paper layer.
Delete excess tube, deselect.
Duplicate tube layer. On bottom tube change Blend Mode to Vivid Light.
On top tube change Blend Mode to Overlay, Opacity 45%.
On the Kandi Word Art layer, use your Magic Wand Tool (w) and select the red letters.
Make sure you have "Add to Selection" toggled so you can choose more than 1 at a time.
Filter>Noise>Add Noise at 14%, Gaussian, Monochromatic.
I used a Gel Style to get the glossy effect, but you can also play around with the Bevel and Satin
Layer Styles to get a similar effect. 
Add your main tube to the left of the tag. Duplicate.
On top copy, Filter>Blur>Gaussian blur 2. Blend Mode Screen, Opacity 50%.
Drop shadow bottom tube.
Now add some elements to your tag from the kit.  I used:
Black Bow
Chrome Star (duplicated and reposition a few times)
Gothic Goblet
Add drop shadows as needed. 

Now draw out a selection around your tag, slightly smaller than your canvas.
Image>Crop. That will get rid of any stray pixels and drop shadows.
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Color. That will get rid of empty space.
Resize tag if desired.
Add copyright and license info.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Merge, save as PNG and enjoy :)
