Click on the circle layer, using your magic wand tool click inside the circle to activate it.

Go to selections, float, then selections de float.

Add new raster layer

Using paper of choice from kit, flood fill on the new raster layer. Repeat this for the other template layers. Remember to delete the template layers as you go.

Activate the word art layer. Add drop shadow of choice and then add a gradient glow of your choice. Move this layer above your circle layer.

Add tube of choice to the center of the star, adjusting as needed.

Pick a frame from the kit and add it to the bottom of the tube, adjusting placement where you like it.

Using your magic wand tool, click in the first square in the frame. Hold down the shift key and click the magic wand in each square.

Add new layer, moving it down below the frame layer. Flood fill with a paper of choosing or pick up a matching color.

Using the plug in Xero>Fritallary, click the random button until you find out which setting you like.

Open the four remaining tubes you chose, adjusting in size if needed.

Paste first tube as new layer under the frame layer. Adjust size to fit the face pretty much in the square.

Activate the frame layer, use your magic wand tool clicking inside of the square. Then go to Selections>modify> expand by 4 then Selections>invert

Make your tube layer active and hit delete on your keyboard. Go to selections none.

Repeat this each time for your tubes in each frame.
