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 a new canvas 600 x 250 white background.
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer.
Apply Mura Meisters copies, wallpaper rotate with the default settings.
Adjust, blur, motion blur angle 120 strength 100, repeat.
On the top layer apply effects>reflection effects>kaleidoscope. Use default settings but change edge mode to wrap. Change the blend mode to Luminence(L).
Add a new layer below this and fill it with a color from your tube.
Copy and paste your tube, resize if necessary. Arrange slightly away from the edge add a drop shadow.
Add a new layer and apply your decorate leaf brush 2 to the left side. Make sure that the top color in your color palette is green. Duplicate it and merge down. Duplicate again and merge down. Duplicate it again, this time image, mirror.
Add a new raster layer and change the rotation of your brush to 90 and apply it. On each end you'll have a part that is sort of hanging down. Erase it on the left side and pull that layer over so that it's overlapping the leaves on the right side. Duplicate and mirror. Pull it to the left, then merge down. Duplicate, merge down, duplicate and merge down. Duplicate one last time and image, flip. Merge all 4 leaf layers together and add a light drop shadow.
Drag the tube layer above the leaf brush layers.
Add a new layer below the leaf border layer. Add any brushes that you'd like to it.
Add a big, blurry drop shadow to the tube.
