Rub-ons & plastic salad bowls...

Bowls


make nice little centerpieces for scrapbook workshops. Found these plastic salad bowls at Target yesterday afternoon with the intent of having them hold inks & stuff in my workshops tomorrow. Was just going to use them as they were...but then I got to thinking...I have lots of rub-ons...I could put them to use...and make something interesting (LOL - I have lots of time to screw around with stuff like this, right?).


I used Making Memories rub-ons and a couple from Heidi Swapp. I love the cursive Making Memories font. And Heidi's are awesome - they seem sturdier than some others I have encountered and have no "ghost-like" outline around the letters.


Just so you know, the one on the right says, "embrace imperfection." This is essential when working with lots of rub-ons on round plastic bowls.


Plastic salad bowls & rub-ons...all in all, a good match

    So cool, Ali!! Aren't rub-ons grand! Honestly. The greatest invention ever. I've used them to add quotes to things (like my mom's magnet board in the kitchen) and label some of my glass jars in my scrap room.

    Love the idea! I've used the rub-ons on lots of things, but not plastic salad bowls! Hope you guys have a great time.

    Oh MY. Yummy. You know you have a scrapbooking "problem" when.... 1) you start putting rub-ons on everything in your house; or 2) you see someone else who did it and think, "darn it! Why didn't *I* think of that?"
    Very clever, Ali — we would expect nothing less! :) Now I have to go BACK to Target (because, really, who isn't there *every* day?!) and see what ELSE those rub-ons will stick to!
    GOOD FOR YOU! :)

    PS: Have been sucked into browsing all over 2Peas today — I think you must have *sheaves and sheaves* of stickers at your house, all missing the precious S — am I right? :)

    You're my favorite - I always scan the pages of my CK magazine looking for Ali's pages before I look at anything else. Are you really coming to Tulsa for the OK convention? I'd LOVE to take one of your classes.

    this is pretty much the most awesome thing ever. ;) but i'm wondering, what happens when you wash them? will the rubons come off?

    Okay, so here I was all poised and ready to run out and get the same bowls at Target first thing tomorrow morning and then...I read the rest of your post and saw that you had done these yourself. You are just too clever! Of course, you did! What was I thinking?
    They are just fabulous. More inspiration, as usual. Thank you!

    These are so Cool! The sayings like "Embrace Imperfection" were your mantras, weren't they? You only used a couple during the class (embrace imperfection, go with the flow, and it's okay), what were the others?
