Starting from bottom layer working your way up,

copy paste papers of choice, closing off the original layers, except for the frame back layer and Word Art layers.

Activate one tube layer; Selections>Invert>Delete. Keep selected.

Activate the next 2 tube layers and hit delete. Selections>Select None.

Set blend mode for each tube.
