I'm new to all this stuff so bare with me. How do they actually work? I saw these DCWV edges (type things) and it said works best with something else to help put it on? The LO's that have these in them are really cool so am thinking of picking some up and trying it out. Are there some better than others?

Thanks girls!

I have a bunch of the DCWV stiches rub ons and I love them. They are so easy to use. The pack comes with what looks like a popcicle stick. You put the rubon where you want it(make sure you have the side that was facing the white paper in the pack on the paper)and with the stick rub over the image. If you look at both sides of the rub on yoo can tell which side goes against the paper and which side you rub.

I used a rub on stitch in one of my layouts and I love it...it is very easy to use...place it where you want it and rub it on.

I have used the DCWV brand. They seem to work really nicely. I am also a fan of Making Memories ones. Have used some American Crafts ones too. The only ones I've ever had huge problems with have been MAMBI glittery ones. They wouldn't release from the backing no matter how much I rubbed.

Most of them will come with an applicator... sometimes a popsicle stick looking thing. It does the job well enough, but some people swear that using a special rub-on tool makes placement even easier. This might be the "extra" piece that they were referring to.

Love rub ons!! I don't use the special tool and have had no problem with them at all. I just used my fingernail to rub over them and they came off easily.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE rub-ons..and I too, will use just about anything to apply them...... Bo Bunny Rub-ons are my favorites, they go on so easy...I also love the glittery ones that K & Co makes.

I havent ever used rub ons. I'm more of thrifty scrapbooker. I try to use things I can make myself or that I can get pretty cheap. Rub ons around here aren't so cheap. Even with Coupons .

One thing that helps, and no one has mentioned, is to cut out whatever shape it is you want to put on your page from the rest of the sheet. If you put the whole sheet down on your page, you risk the chance of a rubon coming off that you don't want to, and you've not only possibly ruined your page, but also another rubon.

Speaking from experience, of course! lol

I use rub-ons occasionally. I usually have no problems with them and like the way they turn out!

Thanks girls! Sounds like I have to give them a try. I was down to M's the other day and they didn't have anything that I could see? The said they were in the stencil isle and the only ones they had I wasn't too impressed with. Looks like I may have to order online.

I do, but not nearly so much as I used to.

To the person who would use them on their dog...my friend and I tried to use them on ourselves once. No, it didn't work, we were going to try our fingernails, but they weren't big enough.

You can find rub-ons in the scrpping aisles at Mikes. Whoever ou asked there probably doesn't know anything about scrapping products. Rub-Ons are usuallt just mixed in with other stuff.Like if you're looking for alphas they will be in with alpha stickers.
