You'll need a tube of choice I am using the gorgeous art of Keith Garvey you can purchase his art to use for tags MPT. This image was part of the FAB gift the artist at MPT put together for us this year. Thank you MPT and artists!
Font of choice
Christmas template by Linda here. Thank you Linda!
A kit of choice I am using a gorgeous collab kit by Sarah, Cora and TammyKat over at Pimp my Tags with Scraps called Naughty List.

Let's get started!

Open up the template duplicate it close out the original. Delete the copright layer.
I closed out the gradient circle, black circle and text layers.

Select the gradient rectangle layer selections-select all-float-defloat and add a new layer flood fill with a color of choice. Add some noise and a drop shadow, close off the original rectangle layer.

Next open up the tree from Sarah's folder of the kit copy and paste it as a new layer and add a drop shadow. Open up the naughty list scroll re-size so if fits nicely and paste it as a new layer rotate it a little then add a drop shadow. I added one of the holly elements from Tammy's folder of the kit to the scroll and added a drop shadow. Decorate your tag how you see fit adding a drop shadow to whatever you add.

Next we're going to add our tube. Once you have the tube you want to use copy it then paste it as a new layer, move it below the tag ho xmas and ho ho ho layers. Then on the oval frame layer selections-select all-float-defloat back on the tube later delete the part that is in the frame itself with your eraser tool. Go back on the oval frame layer then selections-invert back on the tube later delete the parts that over hang the frame with your eraser tool. Duplicate the tube layer and change the blend mode of the top one to soft light and add a drop shadow to the original layer.

In a font of choice add your name I put it on the naughty list scroll to make it look like it was a name on the naughty list. I used the color white then added some noise and a drop shadow.

Add a new layer below the black circle layer either copy and paste a paper of flood fill with a color of choice and add a mask.

Finally add your copyright and license number if applicable save as png or jpeg whichever you prefer and we're done!
 I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow.
