Open a new canvas 700 x 700, floodfill white.
Copy and paste frame 3, re-size 80%. Duplicate, image mirror. Move them close together. Using your magic wand, click inside each of the 6 frames, selections modify, expand by 4. Copy and paste paper 6. Selections, invert, delete. Move the paper under the frame layer.
Click outside your frame layer, yes outside! Copy and paste your close up tube, and place it how you want it. Be careful with her face, don't cover it with part of a frame! It might be useful to copy and paste your full tube now, so you can see where you want to place them and how they look together, see mine for ideas!
On your close up tube, effects, Xero Radiance, default settings. Duplicate. On the copy adjust blur, gaussian blur 3. Change the blend mode to soft light, drop shadow the original.
On your main tube layer, effects, Xero Porcelain with default settings but change the blue channel to 0. Drop shadow.

Close your white background layer & crop merged opaque. Re-size tag to whatever you like, I usually use just under 600 x 600.
