How to Use Temporary Paper Window Shades

Product Information - Click here for more information on the pleated paper shades demonstrated in this video.

Imagine that you've just moved into your home, you have a lot of bare windows, and you need some privacy, but you don't want to be rushed into making a decision about window treatments.

The answer is a pleated paper window shade that can be attached inside the window frame and customized to fit just about any size window.

To adjust the size of the shade, use a utility knife to make several slices through one layer of paper at a time until you've cut all the way through.

Next, peel off the protective backing and stick the adhesive in place. Then, simply allow the shade to unfold. Shade fully extended

If necessary, you can trim off the bottom with a pair of scissors. You can also hold the shade in a different position by pushing it back up again. These shades come equipped with clips to hold it in any position.

Not only are these great as a temporary solution for your home windows, but they're also a perfect solution for that college dorm.
