Now I have found in the past that I waste a lot of paint trying to back fill the seams of the corrugated cardboard, so this year I have decided to just put a few layers of papier mache tissue around any of the rough edges. I use 2 parts glue to one part water, then layer one or two thin strips of tissue paper over  the edges. I don't bother using news paper as if i'm going to paint something I find that the ink sometimes shows through.
