collecting cosmos plant seeds

I've just finished dead heading all of my cosmos and was trying to collect the seeds. Initially i was cutting the heads off one by one- a very lengthy process. This is one of my pink cosmos.

I then decided to cut off larger sections of the plant and put them upside down in a bucket instead. This way all the seeds will fall out of the flower heads as they dry, rather than cutting off each individual head.
