Change Blend Mode to Soft Light. 
Activate original tube layer - Apply porcelain filter with these settings:

Apply drop shadow - I used V&H=2 - Opacity 40 - Blur 4 - Black
If you used a 3/4 body tube like I did erase the over hang now. 
Activate Element 11 (eight ball) Select all - Float - Defloat - Invert selection.
Activate main tube layer - Grab your eraser tool and carefully erase overhang.
Activate Soft Light layer and do the same.  Select none.
Apply drop shadow to all element layers.
If you are going to resize your tag do it now.

Hide White background layer and save as a PNG.
