Drywall paper seperating at baseboards

How do you fix drywall paper seperating from the drywall?
The baseboardv we removed is the same size as the new baseboard.

Drywall paper seperating at baseboards

When you pulled the baseboards off some of the paint adhered and pulled the paper off the drywall?

If its just the outer layer of paper you can skim over it with a coat of drywall compound. Use a razor to cut the loose flappy pieces back to solid paper.

If the gypsum core is showing embed a later of tape and do two coats.

Drywall paper seperating at baseboards

When removing any trim you always have to cut the paint line first with a razer knife.
