Now drag it below your frame
But above the paper background
Copy and paste your tube as a new layer

Draw a rectangle on the frame like this

By clicking the little eye so it goes red
Then click on one of the other layers

Now unhide the background layer by clicking the red bit
Open one of the ribbon bindings
Image/rotate right
Resize 25%
Now position you will have to alter the length slightly
Do this by pressing k
You will see a box appear around your ribbon
On the right side slightly move to the right so it looks like
It is going around the frame
Use my tag as reference
Once you are happy press m
Now give ribbon the same drop shadow as before
