When you reach a circular obstruction on the ceiling, lay the paper over it lightly and mark its centre on the paper.

Make radial cuts spanning out from this mark, long enough to accommodate the obstruction. Push the paper back to the surface and tap the paper down around the object with the end of the bristles.
