For creation of effect of the made old paper choose at a toolbar an eraser with the necessary invoice and process edges of a roll.


After that choose the option Poligonal lasso tool and allocate the extended cone-shaped parts then copy them on a new layer in the top and lower parts of a roll. By means of the option Free Transform stretch and transform the created forms, approaching them to a type of the twirled parties of a roll. Erase corners of the truncated cones curls to create semicircular edges.


Make curls volume – allocate the top layer and, without removing allocation, create a new layer. Change color of a layer to lighter, and then establish a gradient on a layer, directing it obliquely that the line of a gradient coincided with a cone curl corner. Create one more layer and adjust in it a shadow, having established for it a dark-violet shade.
