PostSubject: tip for ornery rub-ons   Thu Oct 30, 2008 9:08 am

I'm sure we've all had those rub-ons that don't want to come off of the sheet and stick to your paper. This may be old news and not even a trick, but I thought I was all that and a milkshake when I first did it and it worked.

After doing a good thorough rub and the image doesn't transfer, hold one corner of the sheet and begin rubbing the image closest to the edge you're holding. Slowly, peel the sheet back (kind of curl it) and carefully rub the image off, and keep peeling the sheet back as the image transfers. Works like a charm!

(Did that even make sense? If not, I'll try to take a picture sometime to demonstrate better.)

See! I knew it couldn't be anything new and earth-shaking.

MME is what I was using last night and they were a major pain - didn't want to come off for anything.

Definitely thanks for that tip!!

I am so bad with rubons too... sometimes I'm just lazy and don't cut out the piece I want to use and of course I always get part of another one LOL... okay okay, I know it's dumb.... I don't do that anymore but I used to!!!

that does make sense and i do that with all of them. when you first start with any rub-on, i find it's best not to rub too hard. start lightly to see how much pressure you will need. if you get crazy with them and start making creases in the paper you're rubbing on to, they never come off. i've done this.

Cool beans, I do that too. I have to say though I have fallen hard for 7 Gypsies Rub Ons... they are so easy to do.

Let me just say...Greta, you tip has helped me a lot the last two days. Those Hambly rub-ons are a bugger. I love them, but they do not want to be rubbed off. LOL!

Also, don't use the stupid popsicle sticks - they are useless!

I have the BG tool, which I love, but I also have kept the plastic styluses (stylusi??) that came with the American Crafts rubons.. they work really well! In a pinch I have used a pencil too.. any of them work better than the popsicle stick!

I have this little green rub-on tool. I think it was put out by Doodlebug. I have to check that though. It works great.

Great tip!
I have the BG rub-on tool also, love it! I used to have the Doodlebug one (the green one) and really loved it but someone used it in a sword fight and the end broke off.

Those sword fights can sure cause havoc to scrap supplies. LOL!

OK...a day after I posted that I loved my little green Doodlebug thingie it snapped. I've had it for a couple years, but dang. It must not be metal, because the way it broke would never have happened, if it was. I replaced it with another. Maybe I should have checked out the BG one. Hmmm....

I have the doodlebug one denise is talking about but i can't find it in my mess. So I went and got the BG rub-on roller and still haven't used it yet, but i'm looking forward to trying.
