The Cherries Puzzle

Get a stripe of paper, then cut two holes and two slits in it, as shown on the image below. Then try to attach two large cherries to paper, without tearing it apart.

Pull the handle in the paper through the holes, attach the cherries, then pull it back up.

Jacques Ozanam (1640-1718) is a French mathematician.
