With the Template open, go to Image, Canvas Size, and change the width to 570, leave the height as is. 
On the template cross out Missy's written layer. 
Save template tag as A bit of a bug. 
Now starting on the bottom layer, scallope shape. 
Use your Magic Wand tool, to click inside the shape.
Layers new raster layer, Copy and paste paper as new layer, resize to suit. 
Selections Invert, on your paper layer hit delete on your keyboard, select none. 

Duplicate this layer.
