I've used PSP9 for this tutorial, however you should be able to create this tag in all versions. 
I am assuming you have some knowledge of how PSP works.

Supplies needed:
A tube of choice.  Iím using one by Gaetano Di Falco which is available from CDO
Font of choice.  I've used AL Dreamboat

Muras Meister - Copies
Andrew's Filters 43 - Copies*3
Screenworks - Canvas Mesh
AAA Frames - Foto Frame

1.  Open a new transparent image 600 x 250 pixels

2.  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and apply Muras Meister - Copies using the Wall Paper (Rotate) setting

3.  Crop your canvas back to 600 x 250 pixels.
Adjust - Blur - Radial Blur with the following settings:

4.  Adjust - Sharpness - Sharpen More.  Apply this once more.

5.  Apply Andrew's Filters 43 - Copies*3 with the following settings:

If you don't like the result, play around until you get something that suits your tag.

6.  Duplicate this layer.  On the duplicate, apply Screenworks - Canvas Mesh.
Change the Blend Mode to Soft Light, or one to your liking.

7.  Apply AAA Frames - Foto Frame with the following settings:

Ensure you apply this to all layers.

8.  Copy and paste your tube as a new layer, move it into position and add a blurry drop shadow of choice. 

9.  Add a new raster layer and move it above all your other layers.
Flood fill with black.
Selections - Select All.  Selections - Modify - Contract by 2.
Press Delete on your keyboard.
Selections - Select None.

10.  Add your name, copyright and any license numbers necessary.
And you're done :)
