Paint the edges of each 6-inch foam disc with black, extending paint to cover ¼-inch around the top edge of each. Let dry.
Trace the 9 discs onto the reverse side of the scrapbook papers. Cut out circles.
Adhere papers to fronts of discs using a thin, even layer of white craft glue. (Note: Papers may appear wavy at first, but will smooth out as the glue dries.)
Arrange discs in a 3 x 3 grid as shown, using a straight edge to make sure they’re square. Spread glue on end of toothpick and insert ½ way into each edge that adjoins another disc; spread glue on other end of toothpick and on edge of discs. Push discs together.
Optional: For additional support, glue a 16-inch x 1¾-inch strip of cardboard behind each row of discs.
Pin and glue the ends of the ribbon to the back for a hanger.
