    Step 4: Finishing the Shade

    TIDY THE EDGES

    • Fold over the excess fabric so it covers the inside of both the lampshade rings .
    • Snip the fabric near the frame spokes to neatly tuck around.
    • Use the serrated edge of the packing tool provided to carefully push the excess fabric behind the rings.
    • Use the smooth side of the tool to finish the tucking in and run it around the inside of both rings.
