In the last bigger hole, cut the drywall patch 1 and 1/5 inch wider all the way around and then scribe the back of the patch that extra 1 and 1/2 inch and peal the drywall off leaving the paper attached to the front. Use the 1 and 1/5 inch paper still attached all the way around the edge as your tape. No 1X4 needed this way. Also, use a 20 minute set up compound mix for a quicker process.
