I love this cherry blossom handkerchief. The beautiful robin’s egg border compliments the cherry blossoms so well and I wanted to create something with it where I could see it all the time.

I’m not sure if you’ve ever used Mod Podge before but they make it in a variety of different kinds. Since the fabric I’m using is a handkerchief, I knew the paper version would work perfect. Mod Podge is the best way to make a decoupaged craft. I’ve done picture frames, cardboard crafts and glass jars and they’ve all turned out beautifully.

I searched through my paints and found the closest robin’s egg blue that I could to make our initial in the center and it turned out to be a perfect match.
