Default Custom Rub Ons

Has anyone made their own custom rub ons? I read some instructions on how to do it tonight but wonder how easy it is to do.

Feedback????

Thanks!

I've only done it once but I was happy with the results.

I bought my 20yo DD a copy of Pokey Little Puppy - it was a favorite when she was little - and I wanted to personalize it. I printed a poem (in reverse) onto pallete paper and then transfered it to the inside. The trickiest part is making sure that the paper does not move as you're rubbing to transfer.

I gave DD the book and when she opened it and saw the poem, she was moved to tears!

Here are the instructions I found. Any help for those who have tried this is very welcome.

Thanks for the other link HoosierGirl - don't know how I missed that one.

THANK YOU Wantogonow!!! I use rub-on's a lot in scrapbooking and I just made a card using letters. This will be great!

Does anyone know if you have to "set" the rub-on in anyway to make it permanent? I'm just worried about it rubbing off or something.

Katy, I didn't "set" mine. With the book, I just gave it plenty of time to make sure it dried before I closed the book.
