Here we go :)

Open your template. Image>Duplicate. Close out original.
Delete the Credit and Spider layers.
Add paper 1 above the green circle template layer. 
Right click paper and "Create Clipping Mask"to form the paper to the template.
Double click left purple square to bring up layer styles. Choose Color Overlay.
Change color to #c2c798, blend mode Normal. Repeat with right purple square.
Clip paper 2 to right and left teal circles.
Clip paper 10 to orange square.
Add a reflective Gradient Overlay to purple oval using layer styles.
Filter>Artistic>Rough Pastels:

Clip close ups of tube to the purple oval layer. Change blend mode to Screen, Opacity 50%.
Clip paper 6 to green circles layer.
Apply the same Gradient Overlay to the word art layer.
Filter>Noise>Add Noise 30%, Uniform, Monochromatic.
Add your tube. Duplicate. Drop shadow bottom tube.
On tube copy- Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur 2px.
Change blend mode to Screen, opacity 65%.
Decorate your tag with elements from the kit.
From bottom to top I used-

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 :)
