For this tutorial you will need the following:
Paint Shop Pro, I am using PSP X, you should be able to use any version.

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.
Add a drop shadow of your choosing to tubes & elements throughout. I usually use 1, 1, 50, 5 unless otherwise noted.
Let's get started!

Click inside it with your magic wand, selections, modify, expand 3, invert
Open paper 11, copy and paste as a new layer, click delete on your keyboard, drag this layer below the frame layer, leave selected
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, resize if needed
If you're using the same tube as me, resize by 80%
Erase the bits that hang below the bottom of the frame, deselect.
