As you can see from the other posts this is not an easy task to explain.

I think the easiest way is to make a set of zigzag brushes.
so you would need to know how to make those, not so easy for a beginner
then use them to nibble away at the edges not as a brush but with the eraser 

Other things you will need to know, how to add transparency.
something like this  http://i.imgur.com/DKB8a.jpg

Then comes the drop shadow, gimp has this filter already.
but you will need to know how to make a selection and invert it.
Finally you might need to convert the transparency back to some other colour 
(or not)
like this  http://i.imgur.com/zag9p.jpg

the two brushes + copies of the screenshots about half-a-MB
