Now delete mask and merge group.

Copy and paste one of the tubes you are going to use.
the tag works better if you have a kid tube

Move your tube under your frame layer
and put the face of the tube in the frame.
use your lasso tool and select any parts sticking out of the frame.

Copy and paste the balloons as a new layer.
I use my pen tool and made string coming off each one.

add drop shadow to each balloon.

Copy and paste the gift bag, cupcake, horn and hat
