By cutting away the white outlines and filling them in with colored paper, the child could create an image for projection against a flat surface, similar to a glass magic lantern slide. Packets of the special transparent paper that the project required could be purchased at stationers, as well as bookstores. Instructions for putting on a show were also included.
