Kit- The Great Outdoors by Gimptastic Scraps. You can find this on her blog here
Tube- I'm using the work of Elias, which I purchased at MPT while it was open. You can now find his work here
Font of choice
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice

Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 700x700
Place Frame 2 in center of canvas. 
Add Paper 10 as a new layer behind the frame.
With the frame layer active, click inside it with your Magic Wand Tool (W).
Select>Modify>Expand by 5. Select>Inverse.
Activate paper layer and hit Delete.
Double click frame layer to bring up Layer Styles- add drop shadow of choice. 
Add elements from the kit to your tag, clustering some of them to the bottom left of frame. 
You can refer to my tag for placement, or just do your own thing :)
From bottom to top I used:
branch (behind paper)
tree 2
leaf scatter
flower 1- duplicate, reposition
mushroom 1
mushroom 2
pine cone- duplicate, resize, reposition
Add drop shadows of choice.
Place tube to right of frame, add drop shadow. 
Using your Rectangle Marquee Tool (M), create a selection around the tag, slightly smaller than the canvas. Image>Crop. This will get rid of any stray pixels and drop shadows.
Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Color. This will trim down any excess space around tag.

Add copyright and license info.
Add name and any text of choice.
Merge, save, enjoy!
