I used a drop shadow of vertical and horizontal 2, opacity 80, blur 5.

Open SkyScraps-Cleopatra-pp6 and copy, make a new layer on your canvas, select all, paste the paper into the selection, deselect and apply the mask. 

Open SkyScraps-Cleopatra-E9 and paste as a new layer.   Resize 70%, draw an oblong selection around the bottom part of the element something like my screenshot below and hit delete, deselect, move the element up and apply the drop shadow.

Open your tube, paste as a new layer and bring to the top, resize as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 62%.
