drywall paper rip--cut off or go over?
I have a tear in my drywall against a door frame. The drywall paper is still attached, and is about 8 inches long & about 2 inches wide. To repair, should I a) cut off 8" X 2" strip of drywall paper, spackle and paint b) spackle OVER the torn strip and paint or c) other. I have a pic but it looks like there is nowhere to post the pic...sorry.
THANKS! I need to do this repair so I can paint this room today.
