You can change up tubes, papers, elements as you'd like to make it your tag! Let's get started. Open your template, resize all layers by 90%, change canvas size to 650x600, delete credits layer, words, top bar and bottom bar layers and both top and bottom diamond layers.

Activate the white rectangle layer, click inside it with your magic wand, open paper 14, copy and paste as a new layer, selections, invert, click delete on your keyboard. Leave selected. Open your tubes. Copy and paste your first tube into the rectangle area, arrange to your liking on the right side, resize as necessary. Click delete on your keyboard. Do the same with another tube, only arrange it in the middle. Do the same with another tube on the left side, or if you want, deselect and duplicate your first tube that is on the right, and mirror it. Merge the three tube layers down together add a drop shadow, change the blend mode to luminance, drop the opacity to 75. Activate the outside rectangle layer, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, open paper 20, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard. Deselect and add a drop shadow. Copy and paste your main tube, resize if necessary and add a drop shadow, arrange to the bottom left. Open your word art, copy and paste as a new layer. Resize by 30% and then again by 60%. Apply the eye candy 4000 gradient glow, white, width 5, add drop shadow. Open treasureboxside element, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 40%, image mirror, add drop shadow and arrange to the bottom right. Open the monthlyledger element, copy and paste as a new layer, add a drop shadow, drag it to the bottom layer, arrange to the right side. Open gold element, copy and paste as a new layer, resize by 20%, arrange in front of treasure chest, on the left side. Do the same with gold coin stack, but place it to the right side of the treasure chest. Do the same with coins, but after resizing, mirror it, and place it in front of the other 2 gold elements, in the middle. Merge the 3 layers together and add a drop shadow. If you want any other elements, add those, resizing as necessary. Add your copyright info and scrapkit credits as needed. Add your name or other text. I did the font color in black then added gradient glow of 6 with the color #ad6f20 and added my drop shadow. Crop your tag and resize as necessary and save!
