  1. Hi Lori! Hope your 2018 is getting off to a good start. I'm having a little issue in making this cross I have a 11/16 inch or 1.7 CM wide of the sticks the craft sticks, and just a regular size paper hole maker I'm not sure what size that is. If I put them 3 across they're not quite covering up the whole stick I've got a lot of little spaces. I see a few spaces on yours but not very many. Can you give me some advice on this. Thank you so much

    Peace and love,


    1. Hi Sweetie, the sticks I used are approx. 14mm wide, which is the same as 1.4 CM. So, I'm thinking your stick is just a hair too wide? Are you layering the circles Hun?
