This tutorial was written assuming you have a working knowledge of PSP. 

~~ Let’s get started ~~

Copy and paste your tube as a new layer.
Center it over the smaller frame.  If you’re using the same tube as I did, resize 50%
Paste the tube again as a new layer below the frame.  If you’re using the same tube as I did, resize 70%
Move into position at the Left side.
Duplicate/Mirror and move into position under the right side of the frame.

Highlight the paper beneath the tubes and click anywhere outside of it with your Magic Wand.

Right click on it in your layers pallet and choose “Promote Section to Layer” and change the Properties to Luminance (Legacy).
Delete the original merged tube layer.

Copy and paste Border 3 as a new layer at the top of your layers pallet.
Resize 90%
Duplicate/Flip and move atop of the original border element – see my tag for reference.
Merge Down – so both borders are on the same layer.
Center the merged layer below the paper you gave the Pool Shadow effect to – see my tag for reference.
