I used a drop shadow of vertical 0, horizontal 5, opacity 75, blur 10.


Open a new transparent canvas 650 by 600 pixels and fill with white.

Make a new layer, select all, paste paper 4 into the selection, deselect and apply the mask, resize 85%.

Paste frame 1, resize 50%, select the interior with your magic wand, expand the selection by 10, make a new layer below it and paste paper 2 into the selection, deselect.   Apply the drop shadow to the frame and merge it down onto the paper.

Paste your tube and, resizing as needed, place in position and apply the drop shadow.  I resized my tube 85%.

Paste element 7, resize 50%, drag below the tube, duplicate and rotate the duplicate 20 degrees to the right, place in position and apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 2, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 1, resize 65%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 13, resize 40% and position on the left, duplicate, resize the duplicate another 90% and position on the right, apply the drop shadow to each.

Paste element 15, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 17, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 14, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 6, resize 25%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 4, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow.

Paste element 8, resize 30%, place in position and apply the drop shadow,
