Ah I spelled imitation wrong. XD
Another use for those inexpensive second hand frames and cute napkins.
Find an interesting second hand or dollar store frame.
I paid 50 cents for this from the local Good Will.
This pack of napkins has four different designs in it, and they go very well with my bedroom design.
Too bad they had only one of the frames. :(
Very carefully peel the printed sheet from the backing of the napkin.
Remember, some have three layers, you will be working with just the top printed layer.
Check on how you want to center the image on the glass.
Be careful the image is delicate. Trim off the excess paper. It is ok to leave it a bit larger than you need, it can be trimmed later.
Better a tad to large than too small.
Clean the glass from the frame and paint one side of it with your decoupage glue, or any glue that will dry clear.
Very gently lay the napkin printed side up on the coated glass. Let dry thoroughly.
Once it is dry it is time to clean up the edges.
I find a nail file works great to remove the small overhangs.
Very gently draw the file over the edge, pulling toward you. Gently remove all the excess edges.
If you like how it looks in the frame with the number of coats of decoupage glue on it, secure in the frame, and hang on your wall.
You wall hangings are only limited by your imagination!
