Template- Template 43 by Kandi Kissez here
Font- Jenna Sue, a FTU font here

Here we go :)

Open your template. Ctrl+D to duplicate it, close out the original
I increased the canvas size to have room to work with. 
Delete the credit layer.
Replace layers of the template with papers from the kit. To do this:
highlight template layer, right click>alpha to selection
open as layers paper of choice, right click>layer to image size (or you can scale the paper layer)
right click>add alpha channel
select>invert, hit delete on keyboard, deselect
delete original template layer

For this template I used:
top rectangle- paper 8
bottom rectangle- paper 13
large circle- paper 1
small circle- paper 11
frame backs- paper 22
frames- add noise (filters>noise>rgb noise)
On the word are layer, I created a selection around the word "Naughty"
colors>colorize (332, 82, 20) and added noise

Add your tube of choice below the word art layers
on duplicate tube:
filters>blur>gaussian blur at 3
screen mode- overlay
drop shadow bottom tube layer

Now add elements from the kit to your tag. There's lots to choose from!
I used (from bottom to top)
ornament 10
ribbon 4
bauble 1
bow 2
ornament 3
present 2
present 1
snow globe
bauble 5
add drop shadows as you see fit

crop and resize your tag
add copyright and license info
add name and any text.
merge, save, enjoy :)
