Open tube of choice, copy and paste above circle 3 to your liking. If there is any part of the tube hanging below the film strip, use your eraser tool to erase it. Duplicate 2 times and arrange each one above the other two circles to your liking, go one of the circles, Select-All-Float-Defloat-invert, go to the tube for that circle and hit your delete key on your keyboard. Do this for the other circle. On the middle tube set visiablity to around 40, and for the last tube set the visiablity to around 50.

Open the larger swag element resize to 588x170 pixels and copy and paste as new layer and arrange so it's under the 'Merry %#@# Christmas'.
