Decoupaging the front of a door

I found this scrap book paper and since it was black and white I had to have it.  Now what could I do with some of it?
Here is a door that I could do something with and would dress this up, I hope.  Yes, I know it's messy but we'll leave the mess of papers for another day.  I put Mod Podge all over the front of the cabinet door (work quickly) and also all over the back of the paper.  I used on piece of paper which made this super easy.  Then I attached the paper to the front of the cabinet door and tried to get all of the wrinkles out.  There was one I could not get out but I'm okay with it as you don't notice it so much in person and it makes it look old.  I added another layer of Mod Podge on the paper after it was on the door.  But there is an area that isn't covered!  What can I do?
I took ribbon and attached it.  I put more Mod Podge on the area I was going to work on and I did the top and bottom across first.  I cut my ribbon to the length I needed and laid it on the glue.  You can adjust the ribbon easily by moving it.  My ribbon wasn't wide enough so I used two with the outside ribbon overlapping the other a bit.  Then I did the sides and let it dry.  It really dresses up the area and since I have all of that paper I think I may do the whole area.  E-mail me with any questions?
Have a great day/evening!!
