Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 700x700
Place frame 6 in center of canvas. Place paper 9 below that.
Click inside both sections of the frame with the magic wand tool.
Select>Modify>Expand by 5. Select>Inverse. Hit delete on paper layer.
Deselect. Double click frame to bring up layer styles and add drop shadow of choice.
Place close up of tube above paper and right-click to create a clipping mask. 
Change the blend mode of the tube to Overlay, opacity 64%.
Add your tube to the center of the tag. Command+J to duplicate.
On top copy, Filter>Blur>Gaussian blur 2px. Blend mode Screen, Opacity 50%. 
Drop shadow bottom tube only.
Add some elements from the kit to your tag. From bottom to top I used:
deco 3
flower 2
flower 1
leaf scatter
flower scatter 1
deco 4
perfume bottle
heart button
gem 2
Now let's get our mask ready! Open your mask on a new canvas.
Add a new layer above it, and flood fill with color of choice, 
or use a paper from kit .
Make sure your mask layer is activated and Command+A to Select All, Command+C to Copy.
Activate the paper layer, hit Q to turn on Quick Mask mode.
Command+V to paste the should now be tinted red.
Hit Q to turn off Quick Mask mode and there should now be marching ants on your canvas.
Hit the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the layer palette (rectangle  with the circle in it)
Right click- convert to smart object
Right click- Rasterize layer
Drag completed mask to your tag canvas as the bottom layer
Resize it if needed.

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 :)
