What would be the best way to cover a 3/8" foam board with paper, then attach ribbon all around the edges? Should I secure the paper to the top with glue fits? Double fixed tape? Thanks!

I just covered a round drum. I normally trace my paper to be 1-2" larger all around - than my board or drum.55b0e94997c2f.jpeg

Then I gather and tape it down all around. Or you can just tape it like a parcel like this.55b0f66a80509.jpeg

I tape the corners and trim. Here is the round one taped down.55b0f7e80e1f2.jpeg55b0f7e91c1ac.jpeg55b0f7ea07d7a.jpeg

Then I cover the back with paper cut slightly smaller than the diameter of the board and I afix it with double sided tape. I then cover the board with basket wrap cellophane and gather it to the back and tape it. Sometimes I glue gun a smaller board to the back of my board so that it is easier to pick up the boarded cake.55b0fae21faf3.jpeg

Thank you for the detailed instructions with photos! I just went with white paper from Michaels here and their choices were limited. I think I saw some cellophane next to it and I have to go there later to get more clear vanilla so I'll check it out. Thanks again. Off to get it done.

I did make Indydebi's icing and it is great. Wilton's clear vanilla now tastes close to the real thing.
