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

New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste a paper of choice Into Selection.

Close out all layers.
Merge Visible the new frame you just created and the paper.
Reopen all layers.

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.

Add your embellishments. I used:

I typed my name out in black and again in pink.
I moved either name slightly over and merged visible.

Resize all layers 80%.
