I found these so so cute cat napkins and wanted to create a fun useful small vase to show them off!.

I started with an old washed out label removed coffee jar.

Cut out the design from napkins carefully. I use Scissors designed for fabric and prefer to use 6 inch duck bill applique scissors to ease cutting of intricate details.

it is helpful to blow into the edge of napkin to separate the top layer from base layer ( I only use top layer).

Put Mod podge straight on the jar and carefully place the design on smoothing any wrinkles very carefully.
