This tutorial was written using the supplies above.  If you are using a different tube or scrap kit you may need to make adjustments.  I am using a drop shadow of V/H 2 Opacity 50, blur 5, color black through out the tutorial unless otherwise state.

Open a new 650x650 transparent image.

Open Frame 1, copy and close the original. Using your magic wand, click inside the frame.  Selections, modify, expand by 5.  Open paper of choice, I am using paper 5, copy and paste as a new layer.  Selections, invert and hit delete on your keyboard.  Select none.  Move the paper layer under the frame and drop shadow the frame.

Copy your tube and paste as a new layer.  Drop shadow.  I left my tube right were it pasted.

Open element 1, copy and close the original.  Select your top layer and paste.  Resize 60% and move to the bottom center.

Open element 14, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and paste.  Resize 70% all layers not checked.  Move to the left so the tree peaks out from behind the frame.  Duplicate and mirror.

Open element 15, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  move to the far right bottom corner.  See mine for placement, duplicate and mirror.

Open element 2, copy and close the original.  Select the frame layer and paste.  Resize 80% all layers not checked.  Move slightly to the middle.  Duplicate and mirror.  Duplicate and move this layer in between the tree layers, move up slightly and to the right.  Duplicate and mirror.  Move this layer under the trees.

Open element 6, copy and close the original.  Select the top black skull layer and paste.  Resize 80% and move to the bottom right.  Duplicate and mirror.  See mine for placement.

Open element 16, copy and close the original.  Select raster 1 and paste.  Move to the bottom right corner.  Duplicate and mirror.

Select raster 1, open and copy paper of choice.  I am using paper 7, paste as a new layer.  Apply mask and merge group.  Move to the left side, duplicate and mirror.

Resize all layer checked 85%.
