How to Make Quick and Easy Rub-ons

There are a number of videos on YouTube on how to make rub-ons, but my technique is a little different, so I just had to share. In the past, when I tried to make rub-ons using transparency sheets, my results were less than desirable. A couple of weeks ago, I made a video on how to make printed transparencies using the Imagine. It worked so well that I decided to use the ink jet transparencies to make rub-ons and it worked great!

Hope you enjoy the video and please leave a comment to enter the giveaway.



Thanks for visiting!

You make this look so easy - I tried this once a few years back with less than stellar results. Maybe the plain paper setting is the key. I'll have to give it another go. Thanks for sharing.

Connie said...

Thanks everyone. My biggest hint is to let the ink dry for 30 seconds before you start to rub it off.

Betsy said...

So you did flip the lettering before printing? What was the font you used that you liked so much?

Thank you for sharing!

Linda Kaiser said...

Betsy: I used the flip feature in my printer. The font is a hallmark font...BaaBookHmk.

Kris said...

Wow! I'm amazed! I never would have thought of this! Have you tried a rub-on other than text? Like a flourish or flower? Just curious! Now I have to remember to try this next time I get crafting time! Thanks Linda!

You always have such great ideas. Love your blog! Great videos and thanks for sharing.

Hannah said...

I love this! I don't own many stamps, yet, so I try to print alot of my sentiments. It is hard to print the sentiment and then cut it out centered in whatever shape I want. This solves all of my problems! Thanks for sharing!!

VinDeeLoo said...

What a great tutorial. I don't have stamps, but I could surely do this. I wonder if I designed faces with my graphics program if that would work for faces. Have you tried that?

Susan Hosko said...

I have been trying to find a transfer paper to print my family pictures on then transfer them onto Christmas Ornaments. I have a Kodak ESP Office 2150 printer, do you think your method will work for me, and can you please tell me what paper you used and where to get it, I tried to pause the video to actually get everything you were saying but was unable to. Please let me know everything I will need in order to accomplish what you did.... Thank-you Linda very much for your help, I Love making homemade Christmas gifts and I think my family will enjoy these ornaments if I can get this done.
