Hi Lois! I'd use mode Podge like these. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/255579347575040945/?lp=true
Mod Podge would be the best.
I like to use spray adhesive on soft or flexible materials, but dipping the doilies into thinned starch or ModPodge may be better.
Yes,Mod Podge or watered down PVA glue or maybe wallpaper paste, will do the job...........Enjoy!
Lois...You can use either lace doilies or paper.
