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

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

Open frame1
Add to your canvas
Resize down by 50%
Rotate -9 degrees
Duplicate, flip horizontally
Arrange on your canvas
Add a drop shadow

Open pp8

Add to your canvas
Use your magic wand to select inside the frames
Select → Modify → Expand, by 56
Invert the selection
On the paper layer press delete

Open pp1
Resize to 600px by 600px
Add to your canvas just above the white background layer
Apply the layer mask here

Add your tube to your canvas, resize and reposition to your liking
Move just below the frame, Erase any of the tube that's outside the frame
Move above the frame, erase any of the tube that's over the frame at the bottom
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0px
Change the blend mode to soft light
To the bottom tube add a drop shadow

Add the tube under the frame in the upper left frame
Flip horizontally
Change the blend mode to luminosity
Lower the opacity to 50%
Duplicate the paper background layer
Move above the tube in the frame layer
Filter → PhotoEffex → Scanlines
All at default, except width, change to 3

I used the following from the bottom layer up with a drop shadow unless stated:
