I know rub ons aren't that commonly used any more, but I was reminded of their versatility recently when I wanted to add a sentiment that I didn't have a stamp for to a piece that I could not put through the printer. That's when knowing how to make your own rub ons or transfers is so handy! I made a tutorial for you about this very thing at PaperCraftCentral.
Here's a cute little bookmark I made with the technique. I added the sentiment on the tag by using a home made rub on. I hand made the rose too but that is a story for another day. The stamped flowers came form the Botanicals For You stamp set. I used Whisper White, Old Olive, Tangerine Tango and Pool Party cardstock for this project, and the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.
