Artwork by Zindy SD Nielson and you can find her here. Please make sure that you have the appropriate artist license to use the same tube as I do.
Tube or image of choice

Mask(s): Your choice, mine was #433 by Vix.

Here we go!
Open new image, 500x500, flood fill background with white.
Copy and paste frame 4, re size as necessary, using magic wand, select inside of frame, expand by 5, flood fill with paper 01.
Copy and paste paper 01 as a new layer, move on top of paper fill for frame, apply mask.
Copy and paste any other elements that you would like to use, resizing and rotating as you go. Make sure you layer the leaves so some are underneath the frame.
Copy and paste the tube of your choice, re size to fit into frame, duplicate, mirror image for other side.
At this point, I usually re size if I need a smaller image. I also save both the original size and the smaller size images.
Add a new vector layer for your text - (I flood filled mine with black) To make it stand out, duplicate the layer, convert bottom layer to raster, expand by 2, flood fill with white.
Go back through to sharpen and add a drop shadow to your layers.
Add your copyright as the finishing touch.
Save your tag in your favorite format and you are done!!
