I'm on a Mac, so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Open a new canvas 700x700
Place element 44 in the center of the canvas.
Position paper15 behind it and resize it so it doesn't extend beyond the frame.
Behind the paper, add element 47 so it shows a bit over the top of the frame.
Add element 46 to the top left corner of the frame.
Along the bottom of the frame add the following elements:
Double click one of the elements to bring up Layer Styles. Add drop shadow of choice.
Now right-click that element, Select Similar Layers. Right-click again. Paste Layer Style.
That should add your drop shadow to the remaining elements.
Add tube of choice to center of tag. Apply drop shadow.

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 :)
