I wouldn't post them if I didn't want you to be able to use them :-) Or you can adjust the settings to acquire an effect of your liking. I don't feel the need to keep secret how I do something. I learned by someone sharing their knowledge with me, so I would like to repay that favor.**

Start by opening your Halloween Template 2 - 

Go to Image - click Canvas Size - then set it to 800 X 600

Now go to your layers pallet & delete the following layer :
Tracy.F.Designz (Credit layer - plz leave Tracy some love when you download the templates)

Now in your layers pallet - click on your Circle layer - Go to Selections - click Select All, then back to Selections & click Float - then back to Selections & click Defloat -
Open P2 - Copy & paste it as a new layer onto your canvas - then go back to Selections & click Invert - now on your keyboard press your Delete key 1 time. Then go back to Selections & click Select None.

Now on your P2 layer go to Effects - then click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - then click Gradient Glow


Then click Ok.

Now go to Effects - then click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow


 Click Ok.

Now go to your layers pallet & delete your original Circle layer.

Now follow those exact same steps for the following layers - **except use a different paper on each one, I will provide the paper # that I used on mine in case you would like to do the same.**
Rectangle 2 - P5
Shape - P9
Square - P7

Now in your layers pallet - click on Rectangle 1 layer - Selections - click Select All - Selections - click Float - Selections click Defloat -
Now go to Layers & click New Raster Layer
Now in your Materials Pallet - set your Background Color to #000000 (Black) or a color of your choosing.

Then activate your Flood Fill tool - then on your template use your mouse & click inside the marching ants around your Rectangle. This will fill it in with your color of choice.

Then go to Selections - click Select None.
Now go to Adjust - click Add/Remove Noise - then click Add Noise, set it Uniform, 65 & make sure your Monochrome box IS checked, then click Ok.

Now on your Flood Filled layer - go to Effects - click Plugins - Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow
Use the exact same settings you used above. (You should not have to change anything, just click ok)

Now go to Effects - click 3D Effects - then click Drop Shadow (again using the same settings above, you shouldn't have to change anything, just click Ok.)

Now go to your layers pallet & delete your original Rectangle 1 layer.

Now click on your Text layer - go to Effects - click Plugins - then click Eye Candy 5 Impact - Gradient Glow. The settings for this layers are different than the settings you have been using for other layers. Pay special attention to the colors as well as I have switched them so that the #673937 color is first & the #ffffff color is 2nd.


Now click Ok.

Now open your tube of choice - Copy & paste the full tube layer onto your canvas as a new layer. Then using your Move Tool - position your tube to your liking.
Once you have your tube placed where you would like it, go to your layers pallet - right click on your full tube layer - then click Duplicate.
Now go to Adjust - click Blur - then click Gaussian Blur, set your Radius to 5.00 & click Ok.

Now go back to your layers pallet at the top & change your Blend Mode from Normal to Overlay.

Now if you are happy with all of your elements & text, go to your layers pallet - right click on any layer - then click Merge Visible.
Now activate your crop tool & crop off any access canvas that you did not use.

Now you may or may not need to re-size your tag, depending on where you will be using it.

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