With 5 cuts and 10 folds you can have this ...
 
 
Part 1 shows you how to cut and fold,
Part 2 will teach you a unique way to adhere it.



Start with your drawer upside down.
 
 
Cut your paper long enough to cover the bottom and sides - Cut 1
 
 
Next fold the sides tight to the drawer sides - Fold 1 & 2
 
 
Turn your drawer over and lay your folded paper inside.
 
 
Decide how far up the front and back you want your paper and crease it - Fold 3 & 4

 
 
Remove the paper from the drawer and cut the 4 corners,
One straight cut to the front and back crease you just made. 
 
 
You can see below the cuts that make your corners - Cut 2,3,4,5
Note: The paper is curling showing you a triangle, it is just straight cuts.

Paper back in the drawer fold the 4 corner flaps down - Fold 5,6,7,8


Lift up the 2 side panels.  
 
 
Fold over the excess paper hanging over the top of both side - Folds 9 & 10
 
 
 
There is your pretty drawer liner. 
 
 
Part two will show you a unique way of
adhering non pasted wallpaper.
