Thank you Krissy for an awesome kit.

This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP.

~~ Lets get started ~~

Open up a 700 x 700 blank canvas.
Flood fill white.

Copy and paste String Frame 1 as a new layer.
Resize 60%
Click inside of the frame and all the gaps around with your Magic Wand.
 Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 14 Into Selection.
If you see any white gaps that should’ve been filled with the paper, use your Freehand Selection Tool and circle around the areas.
Be sure your paper layer is highlighted.
Paste the paper Into Selection.

Merge Visible the frame and paper layer.

New Raster layer.
Make your Selection Tool active set on Rectangle.
Create a rectangle approximately 160 x 225 pixels.
Copy and paste Paper 15 Into Selection.
Duplicate 2 times for a total of 3 rectangles.

Move the merged layer and all 3 black rectangles into position – see my tag for reference.

To each black rectangle:

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer over the middle orange rectangle.
