Kit- Falling for Steampunk by Gimptastic Scraps. Visit her blog here to get it!!
Tube- I'm using artwork by Rossana Castellino which I purchased at Dreamscape Imaging when they were open. You can now find her art at Creative Design Outlet here
Mask- WSL_Mask121 here
Font- Quickier 
Photoshop CS5
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 frame 2 in center of canvas.
Place paper of choice (I used paper 8) behind the frame. 
Using the magic wand tool (w), click inside the frame.
Select>Modify>Expand 5px. Select>Inverse.
Hit Delete on the paper layer. Deselect.
Place tube to left of frame.
Double click to bring up Layer Styles and add a drop shadow to her.
Now decorate your tag with elements from the kit.
From bottom to top I used:
Cog 3
Deco 2
Cog 1
Sunflower Cog (duplicate, reposition)
Deco 3
Add drop shadows to each element. 

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 :)
