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!
