Having pasted the selection as a new layer:

1. Select the layer - left click on it in the layers dialog (it may already be
selected - you could try omitting this step)
2. Use the "Move Tool: Move layers, selections and other objects" (a cross icon
with arrows at the end of each arm)

Of course you could use Copy rather than Cut if you don't want to leave a hole
in the original image

Use "Image/Flatten Image" when you have finished
