Figure 2: Insert a thread between the cardboard and the yarn at the top of the tassel, pull it and make a knot to hold the tassel together.
Figure 3: When you have thus fastened the tassel you can remove it from the cardboard.
Figure 4: Approx 1cm from the top of the tassel wrap some yarn several times around it thus creating a nice little head at the top of it.
Figure 5: Let the tassel hang from the thread at the top and cut the yarn loops at the end.
