Folding Screen

I saw a screen card on Pinterest, but no tutorial, so I created from "scratch!"  I plan to post a picture tutorial this weekend.  However, I have had a couple requests for how-to, so hopefully I can explain with no pictures at this point!  I used an 11 x 8 1/2 piece of cardstock, folded it in half then in half again to create the four panels.  Or, you can score the cardstock from left to right at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, and 8 1/4.  To create the screen, make sure the center fold is the mountain and the other two folds are valleys.  After creating the fold lines, I used a border punch to create the top of the screen.  I then cut the botton of the screen to make it 6 11/16 inches long, then used the SU decorative label punch, half-way in the punch to punchout and create the screen "legs."   Then, decorate and embellish as desired!
