Using Gui Builder with existing class in Netbeans

I created a class that extends JFrame in Netbeans 6.9.1. I placed all of the drawings I needed in the source code, but I wanted to put in a label using the gui builder. The only way I could access the gui builder however, was by making a new jframe file. Is there anyway to edit an existing class that extends jframe? I guess I can just copy and paste my code into a jframe form created by netbeans, but that's annoying and I want to know how to use netbeans.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
