We learned early on in our wallpaper-hanging days, that it’s sometimes better to cut when you get to the corner and start a new strip from there. Otherwise, as it dries and shrinks, the paper has a tendency to pull away from the wall leaving a little gap in the corner.
And by the way, the cut I made is actually very straight; the gray pieces you see are actually leftover remnants from the old border.
I do hate cutting out around corners, though! The walls are never straight and I end up using my quilting rulers and rotary cutter to ensure I get it right.So, old wallpaper border…
New wallpaper border…
New is definitely better!
