You can always refer to the sample for placement of anything! 
Start by Deleting the info on the template and the stars and dotted line.
Select the large rectangle on bottom layer. Selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, copy 
and paste paper 15. Hit delete, selections, select none.  Delete black rectangle. 
Remember to add your dropshadow as you go!  
Select the top circle.  Selections, float, defloat, invert, copy and paste paper 8. Hit delete. 
Selection, select none. Delete the grey circle. Do the same for the bottom circle, using same paper.
On the thicker grey rectangle layer, Selections, float, defloat, invert and paste paper 11. 
Hit delete. Selections, select none. Delete grey layer. 
On the thin long rectangle, Selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, copy and paste paper 6. 
Hit delete. Selections, select none. Delete grey layer.
Select the top rectangle layer on left, selections, select all, float, defloat, invert, copy

ontop of right grey rectangle, delete grey rectangle.
Remember to be adding the dropshadows.
From here you can add the elments. See sample for placement of the elements.
Remember this is just a guide, so be creative and have fun! If you need to make things smaller, use
the pick tool and make them to the size you want. 
Once you have everything the way you like it, Crop and resize, I resized mine to 500.
Now on the right top rectangle, selections, float, defloat, invert and paste your tube. adjust to 
your liking and hit delete, copy and paste frame 2, move it so it is inside some of the rectangle
above the tube layer as in sample. Hit delete again, and then selections, select none.
Do the same on the left side with the frame 2 again. Add your tube again and resize to your liking. 
Add your name, to get the effect on the name like I have, follow next steps.
Select the name layer, effects, 3D effects, cut out, on these settings:
Vertical 0, Horizontal 0, Opacity 100, Blur 3.00, shadow color black, fill interiour with color 
yellow from the kit and box checked.  Once that is done, then go to selections, select all, 
float, defloat, Modify, expand by 2, add a new raster layer and flood fill with white. I added noise.
Add the copyright info, any licenses numbers and merge visible
Save and you're done! Simple and easy.  
I would love to see what you made!
