I see what you were going for here, so I hope my suggestions can help you take this shot to the next level.
1) As I look at this, I get the feeling everything is tilted slightly to the left. This should either be perfectly straight, or intentionality tilted
2) The background is very bland. You could either light it so that it's super bright white and the creases don't show. Use a more interesting background (outdoors perhaps). Or even just use a different color.
3) Just seeing the tops of the objects is kind of a tease. I really want to see more.

Hope this helps!

I always get hung up on the focus of a shot. It's probably difficult on the metallic label. Also... do you have your surface tipped? I find myself wanting to make the objects exactly upright. Or else, more tipped.

This seems quite blurred and unclear, with a ton of blocky artifacts visible throughout the image. Most of it is due to the use of excessive JPEG compression. Your file size of only 36k indicates a highly compressed image and that is what is robbing most of the detail and sharpness from this image. Check your compression settings when you save your file. Always adjust JPEG compression so that your file size is as large as possible, but within the challenge limit (300k at this point in time). You've also got a serious tilt to this that would have been easy to correct.
