How to wallpaper around windows and doors
Hang the paper from the top of the wall, smoothing it down as far as the top beam (or architrave). Make a diagonal cut into the corner of the architrave then push the paper into the angle of the wall. Then use scissors to crease the waste along the architrave, roll back the paper and remove the excess (as on step 7).
Cutting around a window sill? Make a horizontal cut to the top corner of the sill, and a diagonal cut into the bottom corner of the sill. Use the brush to force the paper into the angles made by the wall, the architrave and the window sill. Then trim and remove the excess.
