10)Hold down the Alt key and hover inbetween your shape layer and your new layer until you see two cirles (one on top of the other) and click your mouse.

11)Your new layer should now have a little arrow on the left of it pointing down at your shape layer. This means anything you put into your shape image will be inside your square shape itself.

12)Your audrey pic should still be on copy mode so just go back to your shape image and click paste.

13)Go to layer>>flatten image (near the bottom) and voila!
