I personally would start from the middle of the fireplace and work either side depending on your pattern drop and the pattern weather i would start with the paper exactly in the middle or start from the middle with the edge of the paper , I would also look to see if the fire surround could easily be removed and replaced

Masses of relief cuts perpendicular to the final cut. Never guess a cut.
