Cutting lengths of wallpaper

Postby stivali » Mon Jun 08, 2009 7:21 pm

What's the best way to mark up and cut lengths of paper. The drop is 2.5metres and the narrowest strips e.g. on the sides of the chimney breast will be only 25 cms or so.

Unfortunately I don't have a table 2.5m long so it seems like it will be quite tricky to handle the paper without creasing it and to cut it accurately.

Any suggestions much appreciated.

Use a pasting table and fold the paper. it is much easier to hang if folded and soaked.
