Here goes:

Let’s start with the mask layer: 
New Raster – 800 X 800.
Open Paper 5.  Open mask (WSL 84) and minimize.

Go to LAYERS – NEW MASK LAYER – FROM IMAGE – SOURCE LUMINANCE - CHECKED – from menu, find WSL 84 – OK.  Duplicate and merge down.  Re-size 115%.

This will be the frame layer:

NEW RASTER LAYER - C/Paste into selection Paper 3.  Keep selected.
Now grab the tube you are using.  If you are using the same one(s) as me, grab it now.  C/P and and re-size 60%.  Move her into position. 
Duplicate the tube layer.  
Change BLEND MODE of copy of tube layer to HARD LIGHT and change the original tube layer to SCREEN.

Some elements now: 
Element 24 - C/P and leave it where it lands.  Make sure this layer is UNDER the frame layers.

I place the tube layer(s) here: 
If you are using the same tube(s) as me, grab each now.  C/P and mirror her.  Move to right hand side of tag.  Grab your freehand selection tool.  On the element 20 layer, create a selection of bottom part of element.  Add second part of tube.  Hit DELETE.  Grab third part of tube.  Move into position.
