Technique: Using Adhesive Rub-ons

Here's a step by step tutorial on using the We R Memory Keepers Adhesive Rub-ons with Glitter :)

These are VERY fun and easy to use. WAY easier then using the loose glitter (and WAY WAY less messy!!).


Step 1 - Choose your letters and cut them out of the backing sheet




Step 2 - Place your letters on the paper and rub them as you normally would do any other rub-ons (make sure they are COMPLETELY transferred because if they aren't the glue will stretch (but these rub-on easily, it shouldn't be a problem)). Remove the backing sheet but BE CAREFUL NOT TO LET ANYTHING TOUCH THE RUB-ONS (they are sticky!!!)


Step 3 - Choose your 'topping' (Foil, Flocking, or Glitter). I chose glitter.


Step 4 - Place your topping sheet over the rub-ons that you already rubbed-on and rub-on again.


Step 5 - Enjoy! These are VERY easy and virtually NO MESS!!

Please share ANY projects using these!! I'd love to see them!!
