Kit: I'm using a great kit by KiKeKa Kits which you can find at SATC here
Tube: You'll want a tube with a close up. I'm using Marina by Serg Grafik. 
This tube is exclusive to SATC and can be found here
Template: EI_Template78_pooker here
Font: Some Weatz Swashes or font of choice
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. 
Resize your template (Image>Image Size, make sure all 3 boxes are ticked), and then increase your canvas size (Image>Canvas size) so you have room to work.
Delete CR Info, Grey Strip Layer 1 and 2 and Drk Grey Strip Layer 1 and 2. 
We're going to work with each layer from bottom to top now.
Command+Click on the Black Circle layer to select it. 
Add Paper 5 as a new layer above it. 
Select>Inverse. Hit delete on the paper layer. Deselect. Delete original template layer.

Double click the Grey Corner Circle2 layer to bring up Layer Styles.
Choose Color Overlay and pick a color that compliments your tube. I used #141d44.
Command+Click the circle layer to select it. Add close up of tube in selection.
Select>Inverse. Hit delete on tube layer. Change blend mode to Soft Light.
Duplicate tube, change top copy blend mode to Screen, Opacity 15%.
Repeat with Grey Corner Circle1 layer. 
For the remaining template layers-
 Lg White Circle layer- Color Overlay with #c2cddb
 Frame back 5- paper 5
Frame 5- Filter>Add Noise>25% gaussian, monochromatic
Frame back 4- paper 5
Frame 4- Command+F to repeat same noise as before
Frame back 3- paper 4
Frame 3- Repeat noise
Frame back 2- paper 4
Frame 2- Repeat noise
Frame back 1- paper 7
Frame 1- repeat noise
Merge the remaining circle layers together.
Open Layer styles and add a Gradient Overlay-

Then add a 3px White Stroke and Drop Shadow.
Add a couple of tube close ups above this layer using the method shown before.
Duplicate tubes. On bottom tube layer- Blend Mode, Luminosity.
On top tube layer- Blend Mode, Screen.
Now add your main tube choice to the center of the tag. If you'd like to add a soft glow like I did-
Duplicate tube layer. On top layer apply Filter>Blur>Gaussian blur 2px. Blend mode, Screen.
Drop Shadow the bottom tube layer.
Now just add some elements from the kit to your tag. 
Resize, angle and drop shadow as needed. From bottom to top I used:
Flower 04- Duplicate, flip, reposition
Leaves 05
Branch 03- Duplicate, flip, reposition
Scatter 02
Flower 06- Duplicate, flip, reposition
Bow 03
Box- Duplicate, flip, reposition
Bottle 01
Butterfly 01

Now create a selection around your tag using your Rectangle Marquee tool.
Image>Crop. This will get rid of any drop shadows around the edges. 
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel corner. This gets rid of that extra space.
Resize if needed.

Add your copyright and license info. 
Add name and any text of choice.
Merge, save as PNG, enjoy :)
