First things first...
Let's open the frame, my wordart (if using), download and install your font.
Minimize the word art for now, Duplicate the frame - Close out original.
Using your magic wand tool - click inside the frame.
Selections - Modify - Expand by 10
Choose a paper from the kit and copy. Then paste as new layer.
Invert - Delete. Select none. Move below frame layer.
Make sure your frame layer is active -
Copy the tube you're using, paste as new layer.
Duplicate the tube layer and move below the frame layer.
If using the same tube (or another large tube), make your
paper layer active - Select all - Float - Defloat
Invert - Make the tube layer active - Delete.
Now let's go back to the top tube layer...
Using your eraser tool, erase the bottom parts of the
tube that show on the frame. Look at my example
below to understand what I mean.
Now merge visible. Change canvas size to 700 x 700 pixels.
Copy and paste my wordart onto the left side of the frame.
(or use another wordart of your choosing from the kit)
Resize to your liking.
Add all copyright info and name.
