Fasten off leaving long ends. What you should have now is 4 wing parts with a picot on each one. It should form what resembles a butterfly. Slide a bead onto the pin and push to the head.
Insert pin into the sc where the ends of the threads are. The threads will become the antannae. Then slide another bead , the other sc and the third bead onto the pin pushing the sc, bead, sc and last bead against the first bead. Then put a dab of cement on the pin just under the last bead. Hold in place a few seconds to secure.
Apply some white glue to the two ends of the thread right close to the first bead and work the glue into the fibers. Separate the two threads. Allow to dry and then cut ends to about 3/8" long.
