Now with the new raster layer you created at the start, highlight that layer over in your
layer menu and c/p the paper of choice INSIDE the selection.
Do not merge!
3. Copy and paste your tube of choice above the frame layer.
Trim away any part of the tube that you do not wish to have hang over.
Add any drop shadows.
4. Now arrange the floral arrangements as you wish.
Apply them BEHIND the paper and frame layer.
Be sure to add drop shadows as you go to give the tag the
sense of depth.
Add any other elements as you wish.

Drag it down around the frame.
Adjust as needed.
Highlight the layer behind the tag.
Choose your text tool.
Choose the font of choice.
Click on the vector circle to get a little curved icon with your text tool.
Type any wording you wish, or you can type "The forbidden fruit tastes the sweetest".
Apply the text.
Merge the new text layer down to the raster layer.
Apply drop shadows.
Delete the vector layer.
