For this tutorial you will need the following:

Plugins: no outside plugins used..
Just remember that my choices of papers and elements is just a suggestion, change it up and make it yours! You don't have to follow mine exactly.
Let's get started!
Open your template, shift D to duplicate. Delete the following layers: ©, 1, 2, Raster 2 Shadow 1, & 9.
Resize to 600 x 600, then change the canvas size to 750 x 750 to have extra work space.
Add a new raster layer, drag to the bottom and flood fill with white.
On layer 12, click inside the circle with your magic wand, selections, invert, copy and paste a paper as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard. Deselect, add a drop shadow, delete the original layer 12.
Fill layers 3, 5, 6, 8, 10, & 11 the same way, using papers of your choice. Make sure to add a drop shadow and delete the original layers as you go.
On layer 7, fill with a paper as you did above, but after you click delete on the paper, leave selected.
Open your tube, mirror if needed, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange within the frame, click delete on your keyboard. Deselect, add a drop shadow to your tube.
Do the same for layer 4.
Add whichever elements you like adding drop shadow as necessary. I used the following:
Snowman2, resized at 45%
Canister, resized at 45%
Pie2, resized at 45%
Cup, resized at 30%
Cupcake 1, resized at 30%
Cupcake 3, resized at 30%
Crop, resize, add your text, copyright and credits as needed.
