Piecing in to Save Wallpaper

Digital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageIn the top photo, you see that I have stopped over the door, but gone down the side only a few inches. The 2″ strip of wallpaper needs to go down the 7′ length of the door frame, but I didn’t want to use a full 8′ strip, because that would have wasted a whole lot of paper.

So I found a long scrap left from trimming around another door, and pieced it in. This pattern is very forgiving, because you really can’t tell one flower from another, and you don’t notice that the pattern is mismatched. In fact, if I didn’t have a length 7′ long, I could have used several shorter pieces.

It’s just a matter of fooling the eye!
