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

Start a new canvas
600px by 600px
Flood fill with white.

Open the frame
Add it to your canvas
Make sure you get both layers

Open Paper03
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas
Select the bottom frame layer so you have the ants around it
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete
Deselect
Change the blend mode to Overlay
Hide the white layer
Merge Visible
Resize down to 80%
Add a drop shadow

Open paper04
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas below the frame
Use your magic wand to select inside the frame
Select → Modify → Expand, by 6
Invert the selection and on the paper layer press delete

Add Paper03 to the canvas again
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the mask to this layer

Add your tube to your canvas
Resize and reposition to your liking
Have below the frame but above the paper layer
Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add the tube to the canvas once more
Resize and reposition to your liking
Erase any of the tube you can see outside the frame at the bottom
Duplicate this layer
Erase any of the tube over the frame
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom layer add a drop shadow
On the top layer
Filer → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light

Now add which elements you'd like
I used the following from the bottom up with a drop shadow unless stated:

as07
as07
as14
as10

as04
as02
as05

Add some word art if you'd like to
I just made this one to fit this tag :)
