Mitring Border Corners
If you're making your wallpaper border into a frame around a door or window, you'll need to deal with some right angles. That means mitring your border so the corners look good. The key is to get your border nice and flat before you make your mitre cuts. That way, the cut ends should meet perfectly.
Applying Vertical and Horizontal Borders
Apply the horizontal border strips so that they run past the corners with an overlap greater than the border width. Apply the vertical border strips along the side casings, overlapping the top and bottom border strips
Check the Position of the Border Strip
Check the position of the border strip to make sure any important patterns won't be ruined by the diagonal cuts. Remove and adjust the strips if necessary.
Double-Cut Both Wallpaper Layers
Holding a straightedge at a 45-degree angle from the casing corner, double-cut both wallpaper layers with a utility knife.
Press the Border Back in Place
Press the border back in place, and let it stand for half an hour. Lightly roll the seams and rinse the border with damp sponge.
