Sometimes you just can’t find a rub-on that works for the project you have in mind, so why don’t you create it yourself?

Supplies Needed:

One transparency (Ink jet used here as I have an ink jet printer)

Your printer

The Image/words/etc you want to turn into a rub on

a popsicle stick, or a rub on applicator

Item you wish to apply the rub on to (cardstock/patterned paper)

Step One:

Print your image. You need to make sure

A) Your printer is set to print on a transparency

B) That you print on the SMOOTH side of the transparency.

C) Remember to click mirror image in your settings (either printer or program)

Step Two:

Let it dry about 10 mins or so before handling.

Step Three:

Apply your rub on to your project.

Voila! You are done!

This works awesome on Cardstock & Patterned Paper.

If you do not cut your transparency like I did, then you can re-use it.


I went ahead and fancied up my rub on.

Supplies Used:

Red Stickles

Glimmer Mist (Red & Pearl)

Maroon Chalk Ink


White Cardstock
