I'm on a Mac, so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 700x700.
First let's get our mask ready. 
Open your mask and paper 4. Place the paper as the layer above your mask.
On the mask layer, Select>Select All. Edit>Copy.
On the paper layer, Select>Edit in Quick Mask Mode (Q).
Edit>Paste. Hit Q to deselect Quick Mask Mode.
Hit the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the layer palette. 
Right-click>Convert to Smart Object. Right-click>Rasterize Layer.
Drag mask over to your tag canvas and center it. 
Add close up of tube above mask. Right-click and Create Clipping Mask.
Change blend mode of tube to Luminosity, Opacity 40%.
Add the following elements from bottom to top. 
Refer to my tag for placement, or just do your own thing-
Blood 3
Blood Puddle
Blood Vials
Blood Print
Skull Heart

Add your tube below the Candle layer.
Duplicate. On top tube layer, Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur 2px.
Blend Mode-Screen, Opacity-45%.
Add drop shadow to bottom tube layer and elements.

With your Rectangular Marquee Tool (m), draw out a selection around the entire
tag, just slight smaller than the canvas. Image>Crop.
This will get rid of any stray pixels or drop shadows you don't see.
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Corner to remove the excess space.
Add your license and copyright info to the tag.
Add name and any other text of choice.
Merge, save as PNG and enjoy :)
