Debi,

Here are the directions I posted in 2004 to the newsgroup for making  
rub-ons:

Make Your Own RubOns
By Gabi Rosen

Rub-ons have become so popular! They are an easy way to give a scrapbooking
page or handmade card a custom appearance. I love using them across layers
of
cardstock. You can't use your printer for multiple matted layers but you can
get a good, crisp look with the rub-ons! The alphabets, words and phrases
are
the most popular but they don't always have that perfect font, word or
saying
that fits your needs. I am going to show you how to make your own rub ons,
and
at the same time maybe save you a dollar or two by using supplies you may
already have!


What you need:


8 1/2 X 11 transparency sheet (glossy page protectors work too)
popsicle stick
computer & printer


1. Create your word, phrase or image in a word processing program.


2. When you put the transparency or page protector into your printer, be
sure
that the ink will be printed on the shiny side (If you're using a glossy
page
protector, either side will work).


3 .Set the print properties on your printer so your document prints as a
"mirror image" of itself. You may have to flip your image in your word
processing
program or photo editing to achieve this result.


4. Print out on "best" quality. This will ensure that a thicker amount of
ink
will be printed onto the shiny surface so that you can transfer it to your
paper.


5. Let it dry. DO NOT TOUCH IT! Let the ink dry for at least 15 minutes. (I
highly recommend waiting 20-30 minutes)


6. Once you are sure the ink is dry, lay your rub-on over the intended area
with the printed side facing the paper. Hold firmly onto the transparency
and
use the end of the popsicle stick to rub over the entire rub-on text. Your
Rub-on will be transferred to the paper! That's it! You're finished!
