Spray adhesive shield trick

I use spray adhesive, the 3M kind that’s extra strong, when I’m first constructing my Kindle covers to make sure the delicate rice paper adheres to the archival matboard without tearing or wrinkling. Even though I spray briefly, everything around the aerosol can gets sticky – so I made a “tent” out of watercolor paper that is mounted on the inside of the door of the cabinet where I keep glues and drills and such. It folds out when the door is open, and folds back in like a book when I close the door. It isn’t perfect, but it helps a lot to contain the adhesive. Just sharing!
