Always remember to duplicate your tube and close the original
C/P means copy and paste as a new layer
D/s means Drop Shadow
Remember to sharpen after resizing
Resizing is always smartsize
*Let's Get Started*
Open template Shift+D close original, delete credits Raster 1+2 layers.
Raster 9 : Select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 8 c/p into selection/deselect and delete template layer.
Raster 7 & 8 : merge both layers together select all/float/defloat open paper 5 c/p resize by 70% invert/delete/deselect and delete template layer.
Raster 6 : select all/float/defloat new layer open paper 3 c/p into selection, now take your tube and c/p arrange in the left frame, invert/delete/deselect, duplicate tube then mirror then merge tube layers, and change the blend mode to Lumiance(L) and lower the opacity to 60, delete template layer.
Add main tube resize if needed then duplicate guassian blur 4.00 then change the blend mode to Screen and add d/s to original tube layer.

I Used the following with a D/S unless otherwise stated:
Bubbles : 55% move above your oval layer duplicate/mirror.
Swirl 1 : 45% move to the right behind your tube duplicate/mirror
Coffee beans ; 20%
Paper Cup : 20%
Leaves 2 : 50% arrange duplicate and move slightly askew see my finished tag for placement merge down duplicate again and mirror
Flower 2 : 38%
