Kit- I'm using a fab kit by Kim's Korner called Punk Party. You can find this and her other great kits at Twilight Scraps here
Tube- I'm using the work of Ismael Rac. You can purchase his tubes here. You need a valid license to use his artwork.
Template- Temp 430 from Minxy at Divine Intentionz here
Mask- WSL_Mask93 from here
Font- Black Lightning here
Photoshop CS5 or program of choice
I'm on a Mac so when I use Command you may need to use Ctrl

Here we go :)

Open your template. Image>Duplicate. Close out original.
Delete credit layer, square 1, square 2.
Replace layers of the template with papers from the kit. To do this:
Add paper above template layer. Right click paper, Create Clipping Mask. Merge Down.
I used:
rectangle- paper 37
rect 1- paper 35
rect 2- paper 27
circle 2- paper 5
circle 1- paper 5
rounded edge rect 3- paper 25
rounded edge rect 4- paper 23
frame back 1- paper 15
frame back 2- paper 16
Clip a close up of your tube to frame back 1. Change blend mode to Luminosity.
Command+J to duplicate. Change blend mode of top tube to Screen, 55% opacity.
Clip a close up of your tube to frame back 2. Desaturate tube and change blend mode to Hard Light.
Duplicate tube and on top copy change blend mode to Screen, 75% opacity.
Now decorate your tag with elements from the kit. From bottom to top I used:
spiked heart 5
piano keys
disco ball
ribbon 11
skull 2
brass knuckles
DJ Mix
nail polish 2
spiked heart 3
skull 6
panda 2
Add main tube to top of tag. 

Drop shadow tube, elements and template layers.

Now for the mask!! There are a few ways to do this...this is how I like to :)
Open your mask and add paper of choice above it.
With the mask layer highlighted, Select>All, Edit>Copy.
On paper layer, hit Q to activate Quick Mask Mode. If you see red, you're doing it right! Edit>Paste. Hit Q again to turn off Quick Mask Mode. The red should disappear and be marching ants.
Now click the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of your layer palette box.
Rasterize the layer and drag it over to your tag canvas.
Resize and postion as needed.

Image>Trim>Top Left Pixel Color. This will get rid of any excess space on your tag.
Image>Resize if needed. 
Add name and any text of choice.
Add your license and copyright info.
Merge, save and enjoy :)
