Here's Helen's explanations on how she assembled her screen:

To assemble my piece which is 6 panels on the front, nothing on the back, I cut 6 pieces of framer's mat board the same size as the purple card. My panels were very heavy and had buckled a bit with painting and with the work I did on them so I needed to straighten them out.

I cut 7 pieces of fabric about 4 in x 16 in and folded in half (4 in x 8 in) and sewed two lines down the middle to make a pocket wide enough for the dowel. On 2 of them, I sewed one line, turned the project right side out and then sewed the second line so there would be neat edges for each end of the screen. I cut some of the fabric edges outside the sewn lines down so the fabric wouldn't be horribly thick and further buckle the project. Then I adhered the folded and sewn fabric edges to itself with Fabritac fabric glue so that they wouldn't move and then adhered the fabric pockets to form hinges to the back of my cardstock taking care to line everything up so it would stand straight and to allow room to bend but not too much that it would lean. I waited for it all to dry.

Then, I got a lot of very big plastic covered paper clips ready. I flipped my project over and added gobs of glue to the matt board and adhered one piece of matt board to each of the panels. Then I flipped the project over and used heaps of paper clips on each panel to hold each panel to its matt board backing and to straighten the buckled card. A couple of panels were so warped that I placed a large book on them to hold them flat so the glue would adhere. I left the entire project to dry overnight. The paper clips came off easily and the result is very very sturdy.
