You will also need a mask, I used mask 84 by

I used the font


Please check out my “About my tutorials” page if this is the first time you have followed one of my tutorials, thank you.

I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 5, opacity 85, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 550 pixels and fill with white.

Open pp4 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask.

Open 7 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 65% and move over a little to the right.

Open pp3 and copy, select the interior of 7 with your magic wand and expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste the paper into the selection, deselect.  Apply the drop shadow to the element and merge it down onto the paper.

Open 20, paste as a new layer. Resize 90% and apply the drop shadow.  Duplicate and erase one word from each layer.  Make sure the word “happy” is below “Halloween” in your layers palette.

Open your tube, resize as needed and apply the drop shadow.  Arrange the two words and the tube to your liking on your tag.  I resized my tube 90%.

Open 1 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, drag down below the words and the tube, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 14 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 90%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 13 and paste as a new layer.  Drag up so its between the two words, resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 11 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 75%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 12 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 45% and position below the tube.  Duplicate, mirror the duplicate, resize it again 90% and position on the right.  Apply the drop shadow to both layers.

Open 10, paste as a new layer and bring to the top.   Mirror, resize 40%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 9 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 55%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

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

Open 2 and paste as a new layer.  Resize 70%, drag down so it’s just above the mask, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Open 2a and paste as a new layer.  Resize also 70%, place in position and apply the drop shadow. I  erased some that was too far out at the bottom.

When you are done, crop your tag, add your copyright information and text, then export as a jpeg with compression set to 5 or on a transparent background as a png.
