You can see the parts missing from the word friend.
I hate trashing anything, so, I pulled out a new and favorite stash item to fix them...Stickles.
The first step is to place the rub-on on your page in the desired location.
notice how the black marker is not a direct match to the rub-on.
Next, apply stickles over the rub-0n. The stickles hide any mismatched colors, pen strokes, or unevenness (if you are like me and can't perfectly match the font or shape of the rub-on).
In this case, I used diamond stickles. Coordinated color stickles or even perfect pearls would hide any imperfections and allow you to easily use a broken rub-on.
