I used mask 3 from the 2015 set by

Font of choice.




I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 45, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 750 by 750 pixels and fill with white.

Paste the mask and resize it 27%,  select all, float and defloat the mask, make a new layer and paste paper 3 into the selection, deselect and delete the original black mask layer.

Paste element 27, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 57, resize 50%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste frame 2b, resize 45% and place in position.  We will come back to this.

Paste the main tube, resize 90% and mirror, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 19, resize 30%, drag below the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 60, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 43, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 59, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28f, resize 15%, duplicate and mirror the copy, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 28e, resize 20%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Check your layers and make any adjustments.

Paste the tube again below frame 2 and position in the frame.  Select the interior of the frame with your magic wand, expand the selection by 30 and invert it then hit delete on the tube.  Paste paper 7 as a new layer below the tube, change the blend mode on the tube to “Overlay” and position the paper so a darker part of the paper is in the frame and hit delete, deselect and apply the drop shadow to the frame.

Paste spray 12, resize 25% and rotate 20 degrees to the right, drag down to just above the mask and place in position.

Paste spray 15, resize 25% and place in position.

Paste spray 4 just below the main tube, resize 70% and place in position.

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