~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open up a new canvas

Use your magic wand and select inside of your frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 5
Invert your selection
On your paper layer press delete.

Go to your tube and copy and paste it into your canvas.

Reposition so it looks like they're coming out of the frame.
Duplicate this layer and drag one just above the frame, one just below.
On the bottom one add a drop shadow.
One the top one, erase his arm a bit where it's over the frame on the upper right corner.

Filter → Xero → Porcelain
All a default, except blue channel to 0.

Select all of your layers
Resize to 90%
Move them all the the middle a bit more.
