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

Copy and paste Book as a new layer. Resize 25% & 90%

Copy and paste Lace 1 as a new layer. Resize 10%. Move the lace so that it lines up with the left edge of book at the bottom. Duplicate and move that layer so that the lace is all the way across the bottom of the book. Use either your Selection Tool set on Rectangle or your Eraser tool and get rid of the lace overhang - you want it to only be the length of the book.
Duplicate and flip.
Highlight the merged lace again. Duplicate. Free Rotate Right 99 degrees. Image Mirror.Move all 4 pieces of lace so that it outlines the book. Merge visible these 4 layers and move beneath the book in your layers pallet.
