  4. Make your frame layer active and with your magic wand tool select all areas inside the frame. Selections >> select all >> float >> defloat. 
  5. Make your paper layer active, now take your eraser tool and erase the background all the way around your frame and move the paper layer beneath the frame. Selections >> select none.
  6. Copy and paste your tube as a new layer and resize by 80% >> move behind frame and now duplicate your frame layer. Set your layer up so you have frame - tube - frame. Now with your eraser tool erase the top layer frame across her face and then make the tube layer active and erase all of the tube at the bottom that may be hanging out.
  7. C-n-p el87 as a new layer and duplicate and flip, merge down and position below bottom frame.
