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!

Open your template, shift D to duplicate.
Change canvas size to about 850 x 850 to make some working room
Delete by Missy Layer

Fill the layers with papers, to do this make sure the layer you want to fill has been clicked on in your layer palette. 
Click inside the shape with your magic wand, selections, modify, invert, open your paper, copy and paste as a new layer, 
click delete on your keyboard.
Delete the original template layer

These are the papers I used for each layer:
Square 1 & 2, small circles right & left, thin rectangle & rectangle, use paper 1
thin rectangle 1 & small circle, use paper 9
Large circle use paper 6
 frame back use paper 4

Leave the white layers white & add noise
monochrome checked

To change the word art colors, make sure the word art layer is active, and select your color changer tool
right click on the color you want to change
left click on the color you want to change it to
then run your color changer over the word art

Make your frame back layer active, selections select all, float, defloat, invert
Open your tube, copy and paste as a new layer, arrange in the frame,
click delete on your keyboard
Duplicate, and on the top layer, adjust blur, gaussian 3
change the blend mode to soft light
on the bottom layer change the blend mode to Luminance(L) and drop opacity to 55

Open your main tube, copy and paste as a new layer,
I resized mine 80%
