You must have a working knowledge of PSP, this tutorial was written using PSPXI

Open a new 600x600 image.  Flood fill the new image white.
Using the rectangle tool, make a rectangle in a new layer.  Then go to Effects/3D effects/Inner Bevel adding a bevel to your rectangle.  Then go to Adjust/AddRemove Noise/Add Noise/ Uniform 64.  Duplicate this layer twice by going to Layers/Duplicate having a total of 3 rectangles.  Arrange the rectangles how you like on your canvas. Merge the 3 rectangles into one layer
Open paper-13 placing it behind the rectangle layer.  Select the rectangles layer.  Using your magic wand select the inside of the rectangles.  You can select more than one object at a time with your magic wand by having it set to "Add (shift)" Mode.  Go to Selections/Modify/Expand 2.  Then go to Selections/Invert.  Using your layers pallet select the paper-13 layer and press the delete key. Go to Selections/Unselect to deselect the selected area.
Place a drop shadow of 2 on the rectangles layer and then merge the rectangle layer and paper-13 layer together.
