You should now have your boxes set (or arrange them where you want)
Duplicate once more, Using your deform tool give a swirl up and to the left
Drag off to the side inbetween your other boxes, duplicate then mirror

then the two on the right, then merged only the middle boxes together too
Click inside box selections - mofidy - expand by 4. Open paper 7
R/S to 60%, C/P onto canvas - drag paper inside box. selections - invert

Select your middle side boxes, make sure these are above the others
Click inside boxes with magic wand. Selections - modify expand by 4
Add a new raster layer, pick color of choice, i choose a redish.
Add another raster layer flood fill another color matching the kit
Select the color you want to remove, Using your select tool going down
the middle as even as you can, hit delete on your keyboard.
Do the same for the other side. i alternated the colors
Hide all layers besides your split color layers, Merge - Unhide

Then apply radiance and drop shadow, settings of choice
I went back to my middle boxes, i put tube inside each frame
Blend mode to overlay, i applied two different plugins
PhotoEffex - scanlines on the red part, and color dot on the green part
I used default settings on scanlines. Color dot settings:
Everything default, but value 37, and distance set to 6
I used the selection tool to select only one side of the colors
I applied the matching colors as an outglow as well.
I went back on all my black box frames and added bevel of choice
