depending on your version of PSP.
go to Layers - Merge - Merge group 

open up  frame 2 resize by 90%
copy and paste as a new layer onto your canvas
add a drop shadow

using the selection tool in PSP
draw out rectangle and while its still selected
 completely fill the selection with tube of choice
do this by keep copying  and pasting each tube as a new layer
 then when happy with placement of all tubes go to
selections invert and hit the delete key to remove the excess from each tube layer
untill you are left with just the rectangle filled with your tube
it will look something like this...
