Elements Used :
(The elements are not listed in any specific order, however if you would like to open them all at one time, click on the one element you want to open, then before you click on another element press & hold your Ctrl key on your keyboard, then continue to click on the rest of your needed elements,& they will all open :-)

Now still in your layers pallet click on Raster 8, go to Selections, click Select all, then go to Selections again & click Float, then Selections again & click Defloat.
Now open Paper10, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then go to Selections & click Invert. Now on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time.
Now go back to Selections & click Select None.

Now this next step is optional, Go to Effects, click Plugins, then click Eye Candy 5 - Impact - Gradient Glow. You can use my settings below or your own, makes no difference its all about how you want YOUR tag to be :-)
Click Ok.
Now apply a drop shadow to your new layer. Go to Effects, click 3D Effects, then click Drop Shadow. Below are my settings, again these settings are just my preference, you may use them or your own.
Click Ok.
Go to your layers pallet & delete the original Raster 8 layer.

Now in your layers pallet, click on Raster 5 layer, go to Selections, Select all, float, then defloat.(Remember all these are under the Selections option, do one after the other.)
Now open Paper 5, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then go to Selections & click Invert, then on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time.
Now go to Selections & click Select None.
Apply your Gradient Glow like we did above, & also apply a drop shadow.
Go back to your layers pallet & delete your original Raster 5 layer.

In your layers pallet, click On Raster 9 layer, go to Selections, click Select all, then Float, then Defloat.
Now open Paper 4, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas ,then go to Selections & click Invert. Now on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time.
Go back to Selections & click Select None.
Apply your Gradient Glow & drop shadow.
Go back to your layers pallet & delete the original Raster 9 layer.

Now follow the exact same steps for the "copy of raster 9" layer that you did for the original raster 9 layer.

Now click on Raster 10 & apply a Gradient Glow & drop shadow.
Click on the "Copy Of Raster 10" layer , apply Gradient Glow & drop shadow as well.

Now in your layers pallet, click on your Raster 7 layer, go to Selections, Select all, then Float, then Defloat. 
Now open Paper 2, copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas .Now go to Selections & click Invert, then on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time.

Now apply your Gradient Glow & drop shadow.
Go back to layers pallet & delete your original Raster 7 layer.

Still in your layers pallet, click on your "Copy Of Raster 7" layer & follow the exact same steps you did for the original Raster 7 layer.

Now on the following layers all I did was add a drop shadow in this order.
Apply drop shadow to Raster 11 layer

Apply a drop shadow to Raster 2 layer
Apply a drop shadow to Raster 16 layer

Now copy & paste your tube as a new layer onto your canvas ,re-size to desired size, & position within the circle. Go to Selections, click Invert, Now on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time.
Go back to Selections & click Select None.
Now at the top of your layers pallet, lower the opacity of your tube layer to around 68. (Sometimes its hard to get it right where you want it lol)

Now go to your layers pallet & click on the very top layer in your layers pallet. 
Copy & paste your full tube as a new layer onto your canvas ,then re-size it to 70% (This size will depend on the tube you are using, so you might have to adjust your size to fit your tube)
Now using your move tool, position your tube to the middle of your tag.
In your layers pallet, move your tube layer down so it is directly below your Raster 1 layer . (You want your tube below all of your wordart layers.)

Now activate your eraser tool, & erase any parts of your tube that are below your pink "Emolution" wordart.
Now go to your layers pallet, right click on your tube layer, then click duplicate. Then go to Adjust, click Blur, then from the slide out menu click Gaussian Blur, set to 5.00 & click Ok.
Now go to the top in your layers pallet & change the Blend Mode to Overlay.
Click on your original tube layer in your layers pallet, & apply a drop shadow.

Click on your Raster 6 layer in your layers pallet, go to Selections, click Select All, then Float, then Defloat.
Copy & paste your tube again as a new layer onto your canvas ,this time position it so that a different part of the tube is visible within the circle. Once you are happy go to Selections & click Invert, then on your keyboard press your delete key 1 time.
Now Selections, & click Select None.
Now lower the opacity of this tube layer to around 71.

Now go to Effects, click Plugins, then click Eye Candy 5 - Impact, then Gradient Glow. These settings below are the same ones I used above, but you are welcome to change them to whatever you would like. Remember its about what you like as a designer :-)

Click Ok.

Add all of your copyright & credit information.

Once you have everything on your tag that you need on there, go to your layers pallet, & right click on any layer, then click Merge, then from the slide out menu click on Merge Visible.
Now activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that we did not use. (Which isn't much on this one lol)

Now once you crop your tag you may or may not want to re-size it , depending on where you are going to be using it. If you do need to re-size it, go to Image & click Re-size, set your settings & click Ok.

Now once I re-size my completed tag I like to Sharpen it one final time, this is completely option & just my preference, but if you would like to the option is there :-) Go to Adjust, click Sharpness, then click Sharpen.

Now all that is left is to save your tag as PNG & you have completed this tutorial!!
