Here’s How:

.

Step 1 – Most doilies will have an EVEN number of scallops on the edge, but it still helps to count

Step 2 – Decide where you would like to fold your doily – on the high or low point of a scallop

Step 3 – Using the scallops, line up all the edges and neatly fold the doily

Step 4 – Continue folding until all the doilies are complete

Step 5 – Tie a simple double knot in the end of your ribbon (do NOT measure and cut the ribbon at this stage) so you have a loop

Step 6 – Using your toothpick, put a thin line of glue along the centre fold and along ALL the edges of the doily

Step 7 – Place ribbon onto line of glue at the fold mark – ensure that the ribbon is FLAT with no twists in it

Step 8 – Gently fold over the doily and ensure that the edges all match and press FIRMLY with your hand so that all the surfaces/edges are adhered

Step 9 – Continue glueing and attaching doilies to the ribbon

Step 10 – Cut the ribbon with at least 10cm (4″) so that you can knot the end into a loop
