Cut two pieces of card, the shape of Fig. 10; cover each on one side with silk or satin — both look best alike; sew them together. Leave open a space for the bodkin, which forms the nose.
On the right side fix spangles with gum, a circle in the centre, and the rest dotted about. All round the edge, between the sewing, place pins.
