3 Simple, Fun Ways to Use Your Rub Ons

I don't know about you but I think rub ons are one of the best scrappy inventions!  When they arrived on the scene I had to have them all.  Ok maybe not them all but it feels like I really tried to get them all.  I have quite the stash to prove it.  My file runneth over.  Therefore, lately I've been trying to use up some of the stash.

With such a large variety, they are a great way to add a touch of elegance, fun, jazz or color to your projects: layouts, cards or altered art.

I created the card above.  The entire design is a rub on, except for the patterned paper, bling and pearls.

I also created an ATC and a book mark.  I love having cards ready for every occasion and bookmarks are a quick, thoughtful gift idea for those who still enjoy the feel of an actual book, as I do.

Supplies used: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics; Rub ons: Bo Bunny; Pearls; Bling; Ribbon: May Arts; Rit Dye.

Do you have a rub on stash?  How do you use them?

Comments are welcome and cheered!
