find tube you wish to use and copy and paste into selection.

9. Add a drop shadow to your liking.

If your happy with what you have so far.....close off the raster 2
then merge all visible. I renamed the merge layer to frame again.

10. Find the doodle tube and copy and paste as a new layer
resize it 90 percent might have to go smaller depending on how you want it to look.
Then flip and mirror and place how you want it. I used my deform tool to get it where
I thought it looked the best.

Then I took the eraser tool and got rid of the tail at the bottom.
duplicate layer, image mirror, flip.

I used my deform tool again to get it like I wanted it.
Once your happy with it close off the merge layer and, merge these two layers.

Once I had the one side done, merge just those layers, then take and duplicate it
Now if there are any parts showing below your frame you don't want there just take your selection tool
and cut them off.

12. mirrored and flipped and took deform tool and fixed it like I wanted.

15. Add another 2 pixel border with the paper 1 color.

special effects from filters unlimited, then added eye candy glass tube.
