Okay let's get started

Okay let's get started 

Open the Template
Open your Tube or Image
Open the Scrap Kit, I used I used Paper1, Paper2, Paper3, Bow2, HeartBox1, 
Button1, Frame4, FlowerBranch3, Ribbon. 

With the Template open, Resize the 3 layers individually by 85%.
On the template cross out Ali's written layer.
Save template tag as A bit of romance never hurt anyone.

Copy and paste Frame 4 onto template as a new layer, 
resize by 85% and position, just over the biggest grey circle.
Move this frame layer just below the staples.

Now starting on the bottom layer, back circle.
Use your Magic Wand tool, to click inside the circle.
Layers new raster layer, Copy and paste Paper3 into selection, select none, 
resize this layer by 105% and then move it over to the right slightly so it is just behind the frame.
Add a drop shadow
Hide the black layer

Copy Paper1, then on the main tag, using your magic wand click inside the small square to your left
Layers, new raster layer, then paste into selection.
Select none.
Repeat these steps with the rectangle on the top right, 
but as you do this also select the square and then paste into selection.
You will notice the lines are bigger it is up to you if you want them both the same or different sizes, 
I went for the different sizes.
Select none.

Copy Paper2, then on the main tag, using your magic wand click inside the bottom right rectangle 
Layers, new raster layer, then paste into selection.
Select none. 
Repeat again for the large rectangle behind the frame using Paper2.

With your magic wand click inside the frame layer and add your image as new layer, 
you may need to resize and rotate this slightly.
I added my tube and then duplicated the frame an placed it on top of the tube, 
and just erased parts of the frame that was covering my tube.
Add a drop shadow to the tube.

I then added the Heart Box resizing it to suit and add it just under the staples.
add your ribbon and resize place it so it looks like it is wrapped aroung the heart.

Add a bow and any other extras you like from the kit

That’s it, all done.
