The row 7 is disposed longitudinally and extends from the yrow 6 to that end edgeofthe eet to which the row 6 is arranged adjacent. he row 8 is disposed longitudinally and extends from the row 5 to the other end edge of the' Int)y sheet. The rows 7 and 8 are disposed at the longitudinalniedian of the sheet.; The row 5, aswell' as the rowv 6 between Vits center and each end is formed with a semi-circular part and which are indicated at 111,1;2 with; re.- spect toA the row and at 13 with respect to the row 5. When the sheet is folded to provide the fold 2 and body part lA and with the fold 2 secured-to the outer taceof said bodyvpart 1, the row 6 and its circular parts 11, 12 register with therow 5, and the circular parts 130i the latter.
