Sorry for the blurry photo, but it still clearly shows the scored fold lines for doubling the parts over:

But before folding, cut away the waste above the glue overlap sections:

When dry, cut the collars free down to their finish edges. The semi-circular cutouts can be nibbled out with tiny snips of a sharp pointed scissors.

Here's where that tapered dowel needlenose comes in handy again, to use as a shaping arbor for gluing the collars into their final shape. Any dowel of proper size will do, though.

Finally, fill the gaps with glue and let dry.
