Van Houten's Spider Web Puzzle

A wire spiral acts as the spider web from which needs to be removed a string with two cans of Van Houten's Cocoa attached.  The envelope it originally came in is shown at bottom.  There is a little ring at the middle of the string and I've never figured out exactly how it should be connected to the puzzle.  If you know, let me know at
