So I read a small tutorial in the scrapgirls university about creating your own rubons. I'm making a hybrid layered LOVE album with Brandy Murry's templates of my sister's wedding photos. I wanted to do a rub on of their names and wedding dates. I also read a recent article on it in the digital scrapbook magazine. I tried to find the printable rub on stuff from the craft stores (Michaels and Joanns) and they didn't have them. The SG tutorial says to use a printable ink jet transparency or an 8.5 x 11 page protector. Has anyone tried this? What did you use, where did you get the supplies, and how did it work out? I'd love to see a pic. Thanks.

I've done it with a transparency. It wasn't ink-jet - I was told that the ink jet transparencies are designed to absorb the ink more quickly (makes sense) and the regular would hold the ink on top and it would stay wet longer. I printed it in reverse and transferred it onto my project.

It came out ok, it's not very forgiving, was kind of smeared. But it looked pretty good on the project since i didn't need a "perfect" look.

I remember one of the newsletters had a tutorial on this to decorate candle holders. I believe the reverse side of the inkjet transparency was used. (November or December 06, I believe.)

Thanks for the links. I'm going to order some since I couldn't find them locally. It seems like it will be fun to have the versatility of making your own.

I'm so glad things like this just hang around on the mb. I was thinking it would be fun to make some rub ons from my SG brushes for a wood magnet board I'm finishing up. This will help lots! Thanks Ro for the tutorial too. I found it in SGU and it sounds simple. :)

I love the idea of making transfers and using them on regular albums from the "past" ... LOL.. what a great idea!
