Texture- texture 17 from pack 2 here 

Plug Ins- Mura Meister>copies, DSB Flux>Bright Noise
optional- penta.com>VTR, L en K>Mayra

0, 109, 149, 24
change blend mode to Screen, opacity 75
Activate your selection tool, rectangle
select half the banner and delete the side that will have your bars
deselect

Add texture of choice above your half layer
change blend mode to overlay, opacity 52

Activate your preset shapes rectangle tool
foreground null, background color doesn't matter
you're going to delete this layer anyway
Draw a rectangle the length of your banner a little left of center
Mura Meisters>copies:

Make sure your bar layer is activated
selections>select all>float>defloat
c/p close up of tube onto canvas, and position over bars
selections>invert
delete, deselect

change blend mode to Luminance (L) or whatever you like best :)

add new layer, move to top
flood fill with color of choice (I chose a lighter color for contrast)
Add a slight drop shadow (1, 1, 50, 2 then -1, -1, 50, 2)

Now repeat the steps above, but change the border width to 2
flood fill that new layer with the same gradient as before
move to the top

Add your copy right and license info
add name and any text

To animate:

Duplicate your top border layer and the bars border layer so you have 3 of each
I renamed each of those layers 1, 2 and 3 so I wouldn't get confused ;p
Close out layers 2&3
On both of the 1 layers, apply DSB>Flux, 65, Mix
copy merged
Over to AS and paste as a new animation

Back to PSP
close out both of the 1 layers, open the 2 layers
Re-apply DSB>Flux, but hit Mix again before applying
Back to AS
Paste after current layer

Back to PSP
close out both of the 2 layers, open the 3 layers
