Fold up the silks carefully and place them on top of the roll of paper ribbon. On the silks, place the five or six folded lanterns. Around all this wrap the black silk handkerchief tightly and pin it so that it will hold. Stick pin in at edge so that around middle part of pin a heavy black thread may be tied. To free end of thread, attach a snap fastener, Figure 54.
