I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 15.

Open a new transparent canvas 650 x 600 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect, apply the mask and resize it 95%.

Paste element 5b, resize 40%, select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 20, paste paper 1 as a new layer below the frame and resize it 30%, position it in the frame so the darker part of the paper shows, invert the selection and hit delete, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste element 5, resize also 40%, select the interior and expand the selection as before, make a new layer below the element and paste paper 3 into it, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper and then move the two merged layers into position.

Paste element 16, resize 80%, drag below the merged layers, duplicate, merge the top copy down onto the original copy and apply the drop shadow twice.

Paste element 8, resize 55% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, drag up so it is between the two merged layers,  resize 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste the tube on the top, resize 60%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 33, resize 55%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 24, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 2, resize 40% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 32, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 29 on the top, resize 23%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 27, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 10, resize 40% and rotate 20 degrees to the left, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 20, resize 18% and rotate 40 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 7, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any necessary adjustments, then crop your tag, add your copyright information and text and export on a transparent background as a png.
