Rub Ons

Rub Ons

Rub-ons are an easy way to add colourful images to birthday cards, invitations and scrapbooks. Simply place the sheet on the background, and carefully rub over the image with something hard like a coin or the side of a plastic card, and the image will let go from the sheet and transfer onto your chosen background.

Rub-ons can be used by children and adults and are just one of the many different types of decoration and embellishment that you can find in the Crafts & Hobbies section here at Spotlight.

How do I use Rub-Ons?

Using a rub-on is simple and easy. Most rub-ons will apply to any smooth surface, and it is important to ensure that your desired material is clean and dry before you start using your rub on. All you need to do is place the sheet on the surface where you want the transfer to be put. If you are struggling to get it straight, use a pencil and ruler to draw guidelines. Then using something hard, such as a coin, rub on the reverse side of the plastic sheet to transfer your image onto the paper that you desire. As your picture is transferring, it should get lighter on the transfer sheet, and this will help you know when it has properly adhered. If you are applying a larger rub on, it is a good idea to work form the centre of the image out. After you have transferred the image, place the transfer sheet back over and smooth with a flat tool such as a spatula. This technique is called burnishing and will help to keep your rub on looking its best for longer.
