Hello everyone!
This is my first instructable, and I would like to share it with you.
I tried to make something original and easy to make.
This project needs no special skills and costs nothing.
You can easily make this divider and decorate your room.

Step 1: What Do I Need?

Supplies:
- Pencil
- Utility knife
- Ruler
- Cardboard (4mm, 7mm)

Step 2: Transfer Design

Make  templates out of paper.
Trace onto the cardboard using a pencil. 

Step 3: Cut Outs

Cut out all the cardboard pieces.
For Parts A,B,C,D use 4mm cardboard, for Part E use 7mm cardboard.

Note:  We need     
A - 16
B- 80
C- 70
D - 64
E - 5 parts 

Step 4: Connecting

Start to connect the pieces together.

Just look at the images.

Step 5: Keep Connecting

Continue connecting other parts in such manner.

Step 6: Finishing!

Connect Part E as shown below.


We need to split Part A into 2 parts.
Then connect it between parts B.


Connect all the pieces together to finish the room divider.

And finally the finished room divider!

    Wow! Really well done! I'd love to see this made out of re-purposed printed cardboard, like from cereal boxes or something!
