This tut was written for those with a basic knowledge of psp.
I am using the awesome artwork of  Alehandra Vanhek.
The tube is called Trisha, and she has extra clothing you can buy.

Open a new image 800 x 800 or a size you prefer, add a new layer, fill with white.
Paste paper 5, apply your mask, delete, merge group.

Paste your close up tube, mirror, adjust where you want it, then apply the same mask,
change the blend mode to hard light.
Paste the spider web on the tube and move up a bit, change the blend mode to overlay.

Resize your tube to 45%, place toward the bottom.

Paste the apothecary bottle behind the tube on the right.
Resize the poison bottle to 50%, place in front of the first bottle on the right, duplicate, mirror.
Resize the empty bottle to 50%, place behind the poison bottle.
Paste the candelabra on the left in front of the poison bottle.

Resize the books to 60%, place above the tube layer in the center.

Resize the sparkles to 80%, apply Mura Meister Copies-Encircle with the first number on 30,
move below the mask layer, duplicate, merge down and sharpen.

Resize flower 6 to 60%, place below the bottles on the left, duplicate, mirror, adjust on the right, duplicate again and move down so some shows at the bottom.
Paste the berry branch on the right between the bottles.

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

If you want to Animate
Resize all layers first, add your copyright and name first, then copy
merged with the white background to animation and make as many layers as the candle flame has, which is 21 layers.
Then click on the first candle layer in animation, go to Edit, select all, copy.
Then on the first layer of your tag, go to Edit, select all, paste into selected frame.
Keep pasting in selected frame until all the candles are lit.
Test your animation and if happy save.

If you are not going to animate, then do the below.

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.
