1 Open a new transparent image 1000 by 800, I always use a large workspace, you can always crop or resize later, floodfill with white.
2 Open three papers from the kit in psp, I used paper 5, 9 and 3.
3 Duplicate them all (shift D) and close the originals.
4 Make sure your paper 5 is active.
5 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk and find your wsl mask 42 with these settings:




Source luminance checked
Fit to canvas checked
Invert transparency UNchecked
Hide all mask checked.

6 Layers/Merge/Merge group.
7 Image/Resize with 50%, all layers CHECKED.
8 Minimize for now.
9 Make sure your paper 9 is active.
10 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk and find your wsl mask 45 with these settings:

Invert transparency UNchecked
Hide all mask checked

11 Layers/Merge/Merge group
12 Image/Resize with 60%, all layers CHECKED.
13 Minimize for now.
14 Make sure your paper 3 is active.
15 Layers/Load/Save mask/Load mask from disk and find your wsl mask 41 with these settings:

16 Layers/Merge/Merge group.
17 Image/Resize with 70%, all layers CHECKED.
18 Layers/Duplicate all three masklayers and paste them on your white new image you made in step 1.
20 Move them around so the biggest one is first, than the middle, than the smallest, see my tag for reference.
21 Take your ellipse shapes tool, make sure you have circle checked, linestyle solid and the widht set to 10, foreground to white in your materialspalette, background to null



22 Draw a circle on top of the biggest cirlelayer, see mine for reference.
23 Layers/Convert to a raster layer.
24 Take your magic wand and click inside the frame you just made.



25 Selections/Modify/Expand with three pixels.
26 Make sure you are on the biggest circlelayermask and hit delete once on your keyboard.
27 Make sure you are on the second circlelayermask and hit delete again.
28 If you did this correct you should have only the white from the background in your framelayer.
29 Don't deselect yet!
30 Now open your tube in psp.
31 Edit/Copy, Edit/Paste as a new layer on your tag.
32 Move the tube inside of the frame layer.
33 Now comes the tricky part so pay attention :-), if you want the tube to be around the tag like mine (the legs etc) do this:
34 Layers/Duplicate
35 Make sure the duplicate of your tube is on top of the frame and the first one under the frame.
36 make sure you are on the first one and hit delete once.
37 Selections/Select none
38 Give the frame a dropshadow of choice or use mine:



horizontal 2
vertical 2
opacity 55
blur 5
color black
shadow on new layer UNchecked.

39 Now make sure you are on the duplicatelayer of your tube and erase the parts you want in the frame and make sure you leave the parts you want on top of it out. It's easier to zoom if you do this.
