Okay let's get started

Open a new image 600x600 (we can resize later)
Open your tube, and the mask.
Open any 2 papers of choice, Frame and any extra embellishments and
ribbons of choice if you would like to use them.
I used paper10 for the mask and paper 7 behind the frame.
Layers, new raster layer floodfill with white.
Edit copy, edit paste 1 paper as a new layer, resize by 90%, twice.
Layers, new mask layer, from Image and locate Mask-7-Rachel'06
Source Luminance Checked, Invert mask Data, unchecked, OK
Layers, Merge, Merge group resize by 85% twice.
Duplicate image free rotate, left 5.00, OK
Duplicate this copy and add the same rotation.
Back on the original mask layer, duplicate, Image, mirror, and then resize by 95%.
Using your pick tool, just close the sides of that mask layer in slighty.
Paste another paper of choice as new layer, resize by 70%, twice, then by 80% once.
Add a drop shadow of choice
duplicate, image, free rotate, left 5.00
then duplicate this layer and rotate by 5.00
then duplicate this layer and rotate by 5.00
Bring your original back to the top layer and arrange the other layers,
so the smaller rototation is just under the original and so on.
(Look at my tag for reference)
Duplicate the original layer, and rotate right 5.00
duplicate this layer and rotate 5.00
Bring the original back to the top, and add another drop shadow.
Duplicate the original.
Now cross out this layer and the mask layers and the white layer.
Merge visible
Paste the frame as a new layer and position where suitable, resize by 90%.
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer move this layer under your
frame, resize, rotate and position where suitable.
Using your magic wand, on your frame layer, select in side the frame,
selections, modify, expand by 10, OK
Selections, Invert, and back on your tube layer, press delete on your keyboard.
Add a drop shadow to your frame.
This next step is optional, I used it as I wanted the flowers in under the frame.
Using your magic wand, back on the frame layer select in side your
frame again, then copy and paste a paper of choice, into selection.
Move this layer between the frame and tube layer.
Then just erase it to you are left with the parts you want showing.
Cross out all layers, excet for the top paper, frame, overlay paper
and tube, merge these layers togeather
Uncross all layers, and duplicate this merged layer.
Colourize to your liking and then change the opacity to 80.
Okay still with me your nearly done.
Now is the time to add any flowers, embellishments, ribbons, brushes etc
Resize to your liking and your nearly done.
Add all appropriate copywrite information, and your name.
Once happy with your creation
Resize all layers to your liking and your done.
Save your tag.
