Please be sure to check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first tutorial of mine you have followed, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 85, blur 5.

  
Open the template, duplicate and close the original.  Resize 70% with the box “Resize all layers” checked then increase your canvas size back to 700 x 700 pixels and refill the “bg” layer with white.

Delete the “info” layer  and the “white strip” layer. 

Merge “wording” layer down onto the “wording white with d/s" layer and then move the merged layer further down on your tag using mine for a reference.

Apply the drop shadow to “dots” layer.

Activate the “left pink square” layer, float and defloat it, make a new layer above it, copy Paper 4 and paste it into the selection, deselect.  Delete the original template layer and apply the drop shadow to the “left white square” layer.

Now activate “right pink square” layer and repeat pasting Paper 1 into the selection and deleting the template layer.  Apply the drop shadow to the “right white square”.

Activate “black rectangle” layer and repeat pasting Paper 2 into the selection, apply the drop shadow to this layer and delete the template layer, 

Activate “black circle” layer, float and defloat as before, make a new layer and fill with a colour from your tube, deselect and delete the original layer.  Apply the drop shadow to the “white circle” layer.

Activate “right blue rectangle” layer, float and defloat it, make a new layer as before and paste Paper 1 into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow and delete the template layer.

Activate “white rectangle layer” and repeat pasting Paper 3 into the selection deleting the template layer.

Activate “blue strip” layer, float and defloat, make a new layer and paste Paper 4 into the selection, deselect, apply the drop shadow and delete the template layer. 

Activate “blue left rectangle” and repeat as before pasting Paper 1 into the selection, apply the drop shadow to this layer and delete the template layer. 

Paste your main tube as a new layer, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized the tube 80%.

Activate “left white rectangle” layer, float and defloat it, make a new layer and fill with a dark brown, I used #281512 , delete the original layer.  Paste your tube again and position it on the brown layer, resizing if needed, invert the selection and hit delete to remove the excess, deselect and lower the opacity to around 50.  I used the tube in its original size here. 

Activate “white frame bgs” layer, float and defloat it, make a new layer and fill each section with the dark brown, delete the original layer and deselect.

Repeat with the “pink frame” layer filling the new layer with the same colour from your tube that you used before.

Duplicate your main tube, drag down so it's between the two frame layers and the brown background layer and position it in the frames, select the interior of that section of the black frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 5, invert it and hit delete on the tube to remove the excess then deselect.  Repeat this with each section of the frame mirroring some of the copies and then apply the drop shadow to both the frame layers.  Close off all your layers apart from these frame layers, the brown background layer and the copy tube layers, merge visible and re-open the closed layers

Paste Label from the kit as a new layer, resize 90%, place in position below the merged layer and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Bean Divider as a new layer, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Ribbon 1 as a new layer, resize 60%, drag above the merged layer, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste Paper Flower 2 as a new layer,  resize 25% twice, duplicate, mirror the duplicate, place the flowers in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Check the positions of your layers and make any necessary adjustments.

Activate the white bg layer, make a new layer above it, select all, paste Paper 2 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 93%.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export on a transparent background as a png.
