PTU Here Comes Santa Claus!!

This tutorial was written for those who have a working knowledge of PSP. Any similarity to another tutorial is purely coincidental.
:Supplies Needed: 

PSP X3 but any version will work
PTU Scrap kit, Santa Baby by Creative Scraps by Crys found here
PTU tube by Keith Garvey and you need a license to use his work and you can find them here 
Font of choice I used Great Vibes
Template I used is Template Collab 39 by Elegant Inspirations found here
Add Drop Shadow as you go with your settings at -2, 1, 65, 10
**NOTE: You will need to resize all the elements to your liking**

Let's Begin!

  Open up Template and delete the copyright layer, (after you are done you can resize the template to your liking, I did mine at 500 x 500)
So first delete the following layers from the template:
the copyright info
red dotted outline
white square
Now we are going to be adding papers from this kit to the shapes of the template. I am going to show you one time for one shape and then just follow these same steps for the rest of the template. 

So starting from the bottom of the template and working our way up. At the very bottom of the layer palette, you will see background and right above that layer you will see  gradient rectangle, and right above that you will see Green Circles. This is where we are gonna put our first paper from the kit, I used paper 8 from the kit. Open up paper 8 from the kit and then right click copy, close off the paper (you can resize if you want but I didn't cause it really doesn't matter on this template) then right click paste as new layer above the Green Circles. Now you will have another new layer with the paper above the green circles. Now click the Green Circles layer again on your Layers Palette and then go to Selections- Select All- Float- Defloat, then click the paper layer you just added, to highlight on the layers palette, then go up to Selections-Invert then hit Delete on your keyboard, Deselect, and now you will have a new layer with the paper the same shape as the Green Circles, you can delete that layer with the Green Circles as you don't need it. 

So that is how you will add papers to each shape on the template. Just follow these same steps above. You can choose whatever papers you want from the kit, just get creative and have fun! 

You can use my tag as a guideline.
So now that you have all papers on the shapes of the template, this is where you will add your main tube. So open up your tube of choice and right click copy, close off tube, right click paste as new layer below the Santa wordart. Resize her to your liking. Duplicate the tube.

Now place this duplicate tube below your main tube on the layers palette but above the red circle shape. 

Now click the layer with the white dotted outline on the layers palette, and now using your magic wand click inside the circle. Now click on the bottom duplicate tube on the layer palette and then go to Selections- Invert- hit delete on your keyboard, deselect. The tube should be in the dotted white circle. Now using your eraser, click the top tube on the layers palette and erase the parts that are sticking out of the circle. 
Now that we have the papers on the template and the tube placed where she needs to be now you can get creative and copy and paste any elements from the kit, making sure you add each on as a NEW LAYER.
Add you copyright info and name and you are done!
