This month our resident noncrafter, Barrie Gillies, goes mano a mano with circle punches and pretty paper to create winsome décor that dresses up a reception doorway. Curtain up!

Step 3 - Glue

Apply a glue stick to one side of a circle. Lay a strand of ribbon along its center. (I put more glue directly onto the ribbon for added security.) Then place the other matching circle on top and smooth it down. Repeat with the 14 other paper pairs to make one strand. Repeat steps 2 and 3 to make the other nine strands.
