 Font of Choice, I used Alex Brush

Drop Shadow usually V2 H2 50 black
 *Remember to add your drop shadow as you go along*

Open a new image 800 x 800 or one you prefer.

Paste paper 3, apply your mask 109 first, delete and merge group. Paste the same paper again and apply mask 8, delete and merge group.

Paste frame 5 on the mask layer, duplicate, mirror, duplicate, flip, duplicate, mirror, line up and erase all the purple bows until you have one big frame.
Once you have all erased, close off your mask layers and merge the frames together. Or you could take your free hand tool, draw around where the bow is, delete, duplicate the frame, flip, duplicate, mirror and line them up that way.
Always more than one way to do things, this is just the way I did it, so do what works best for you. :)
Click inside with your magic wand, expand by 5, paste paper 9, invert, delete, select none.

Paste frame 5 on top of these, free rotate to the right at 20 degrees and move over to the right some.

Resize the sign and tube to 95%, paste the sign on the left side, paste your tube on the right and mirror.

Resize the clouds to 90%, paste at the bottom on your tube layer, duplicate, merge down, duplicate again and move over to the left on the sign layer, duplicate again and move below the sign, duplicate one more time and move up a bit to help cover some of the bow on the frame, erase some of the snow on the sign.

Resize flowers 2 to 60%, place on the left just above the sign layer, duplicate, resize to 90%, move over to the right a bit more, duplicate again, move over below the tube layer on the right, erase the part behind the fuzzy part of the hat.

Resize the berries to 85%, paste on the left just above the frame layer, duplicate the berries, mirror, move below the frame layer and down some.

Resize the cat to 50%, place by the sign.
Resize the mistletoe to 65%, place on top of the sign.
Resize the ornaments to 50%, place them where you like.
Paste the opaque circles below the tube layer on the sign more.
Resize flower 3 to 35%, place below the ornament layers on the left, duplicate, move over to the right more.

Resize a snowflake to 25%, duplicate a couple of times and place on the bottom.

Add any other elements you would like, make it your own.

Crop your tag to be sure no stray shadows are on the edges of your tag.
Once happy with it all, close off any backgrounds, merge visible.
Resize first, then add your copyrights and name.
That's it
Hope you enjoyed doing my tut.
