Default Homemade Rub-ons

Hi, Does anyone remember where the directions are for making these? It involves a spray and your computer printer.

Smile Custom Rub-Ons

Custom Rub-Ons--From Paper Crafts Magazine advertisement on page 101 of the June/July 2006 issue.

It's easy with Preserve It! spray from Krylon and a digital photo. Just spray the smooth side of a transparency sheet, let dry, print the photo, spray again, and apply the photo as a rub-on to your project. This technique works great with printed text and patterns, too. No computer? No problem-just use a scanner/copier? The paper finish spray also extends and protects the life of digital photos, paper projects, and scrapbook pages.

There is also an online tag project using homemade rub-ons created with Preserve It!, see the All-American Tag by Vanessa Spady at

I hope this helps.
Ps.....don't forget that if you are going to make text rub-ons you will need to mirror image or reverse the print before you print it on the transparency sheet.
