Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 750x750
Place element 29 in center of canvas. Place paper 1 under that. 
Using the Magic Wand Tool, click inside the frame. 
Select>Modify>Expand. Select>Inverse. Hit Delete on the paper layer.
Deselect and add a drop shadow to the frame.
Behind the paper layer, add element 36 to the right side.
 Duplicate and flip, reposition to the left side.
Add element 34 and place on top of the frame, near the middle right. Duplicate
Resize the copy and move to the lower left of the frame.
Add element 43 to the right side and line it up so the string on element 34 is flush with it.
Refer to my tag for placement if needed.
Add element 2 to both sides of the frame, towards the bottom. 
Add element 47 to the left of the frame.
Now add your tube of choice. Duplicate.
On top copy, change blend mode to Soft Light, Opacity 50%.
Add element 59 directly above the tube copy layer.
Now from bottom to top, left to right, add the following:
Add drop shadows to all the elements except 59.

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 (I just picked a blue from one of the hearts and filled the layer with that).
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 :)
