Tilda’s Shoji Screen/Room Divider Directions

Hello!   Hope you’re having a good weekend. I’ve received a few emails asking how this screen behind Tilda on this card was made . . .

Here’s a quick photo tutorial on how I did it:

Supplies used:

I used the middle die from a Spellbinders Nestabilities Long Classic Rectangle LG set, which measures 1 7/8 x 3 3/4; However, I think a rectangle punch approximately this same size will work also.


vellum paper


Cuttlebug or other due cutting machine


removable tape

  • Cut cardstock to 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches, and cut vellum to 4 3/8 by 4 3/8 inches. (Sorry, I only had this dotted vellum in my stash as an example.)

  • Place die on cardstock, centered on one half. Note, I’ve adhered it with a small piece of removeable tape to be sure it doesn’t shift in the Cuttlebug.

  • Run this through the machine and move the die to the other half of your cardstock. Be sure to save the two inside pieces for later use.

  • Apply adhesive to back of cardstock “frame”.

  • And attach pre-cut vellum piece.

  • The final step is to take the center pieces of cardstock and cut your dividing pieces. I just cut these without measuring, I believe they are about 1/4 inch wide. You don’t have to worry about the length, if you cut the longer pieces from one and the cross pieces from the other piece – they will fit perfectly.

  • And attach these to your frame. Done! Your mini Shoji is now ready for Tilda. 🙂

I hope this was helpful! If you do use this idea for a card, I’d love to see it. Thanks for all your VERY kind comments!
