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

~~ Let’s get started ~~

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

Copy and paste el 5.
Resize 70%
Duplicate and resize 90%

Move all 3 frames into position making the biggest frame the center one – see my tag for reference.
To each frame:
Click inside the frame with your Magic Wand.
Selections/Modify/Expand by 4.
New Raster layer below the frame.
Copy and paste Paper 9 Into Selection.

Open up Paper 13.
Make your Rectangle Tool active.
Make your settings to match mine:

In your layers pallet close out the foreground.
Set the background to Pattern/Paper 13:

Create a rectangle approximately 180 x 580 pixels.
Convert to Raster Layer.
Give it a slight Inner Bevel:

Affects/Edge Effects/Enhance
Affects/Edge Effects/Enhance More.
Move into position just above the white background – see my tag for reference.

Close out Paper 13.
Open up Paper 12.
Make a rectangle approximately 50 x 625 pixels.
Repeat the above step with the bevel and enhancements.

19:  Resize 70%/Duplicate/Free rotate Left 45 degrees(this one goes behind the left bottom of the center frame)
46:  Use your Eraser Tool to soften each of the ends
30:  Resize 50%
