Does anyone out there still use rub-ons?
If so, I found a way to use them that does NOT require a popsicle stick, rub-on tool or rubbing of any kind!
Here's what you do:
Simply peel off the backing, place the rub-on where you want it & run it through your embossing machine. That is all there is to it.
For your sandwich you will need the indicated supplies in the exact order listed:
"A" Plate + cardstock + rub-on on top of cardstock + rubber embossing mat + "B" plate then you run it through your embossing machine.
This sandwich applies to the Cuttlebug since that is what I used. You basically want a thick base to set your cardstock on, then the rubber/embossing mat to impress softly- creating the contact needed so when you add the thinner plate over the top of the rubber/embossing mat that keeps everything engaged & provides the necessary pressure while rolling through the machine to secure the rub-on to the cardstock.
Basically, whatever machine you use you could probably follow the protocol for embossing to applying rub-ons & it should work.
That's all for this week. Hope this tip comes in handy.
Have a wonderful week!
