Today I’m sharing my Drivers License Scrapbook Layout. Since this is a very exciting day for you and your teen, this will help you put this day in their memory book for them to enjoy for years to come!
Drivers License Scrapbook Layout:
Heading to the DMV my son was excited and nervous. For most of the pictures, I stayed in the background snapping away so that I wouldn’t embarrass him. Getting his photo next to the Drivers License Office sign did require his participation, though. He was very pleased when he was able to pass his Drivers Test on the first try!
Drivers License Scrapbook Layout What You Need:
White and Colored Cardstock
Cricut Machine or stickers
50 States Cricut Cartridge
Cutter Bee Precision Cut Scissors
Photographs of the Big Event
12-inch Paper Trimmer
Corner Rounder Punch
Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine
How To Make Drivers License Scrapbook Layout:
Step 1: Looking at your teen’s new Drivers License, choose two pieces of cardstock for your background.
Step 2: Next, using your paper trimmer, cut the border for the top and bottom of the page. For this layout, the top border is 2-inches wide, and the bottom border is 1-inch wide.
Step 3: Continue on using your Diecut Machine to cut out the letters needed to make the header for your page. These letters, all except the first letter of each word, are 1-1/2 inches tall, cut out of the Cricut Alphalicious Font. The first letter of each word is 2-inches tall, cut from the same font.
Step 4: You are now ready to use your Xyron Create-a-Sticker Machine to attach your header letters to your top Border.
Step 5: Use your adhesive applicator to attach your top border, with the header letters on it, to the top of your scrapbook pages.
Step 6: Using your Diecut Machine, cut the 1-1/4 inch tall D, M, and V letters from red cardstock. Also, cut out the letters to spell the word License 1-1/2 inches tall. Then Trim the cardstock down to 1-3/4 inches wide around the cut-out D, M, and V, letters so that your background will show through as the color for these letters. The D, M, and V, as well as the rest of the letters for the license, were cut from the Cricut Keystone Font.
Step 7: You can attach the D, M, V-cutout to your page under your top border with your adhesive runner.
Step 8: Your sticker maker makes attaching the letters spelling license to the page under your top border a snap.
Step 9: The next step is to cut out the image of your state 6-1/2 inches wide, using the Cricut 50 States Cartridge, and attach it to your scrapbook pages with your adhesive applicator.
Step 10: You are now ready to cut out the letters for the name and address, and the word class, from black card stock, using the Cricut Keystone Font, 1-inch tall and attach to your scrapbook pages using your Xyron Create-A-Sticker Machine. The letter C for the class C license is 1-1/4-inches tall.
Step 11: Note: If you need the red Organ Donor heart, you can cut it from the red cardstock 2-inches high using the George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridge. Attach the heart using your adhesive applicator.
Step 12: Now is the time to use your paper trimmer, and your precision scissors to trim your photographs and cut out any mats for your photographs you need. Mats will make your pictures stand out from the background. You can also make rounded corners on any photographs you wish with a corner rounder punch. My favorite scissors to cut around the edge of the images so they pop off the page are the EK Success Cutter Bee Precision-Cut Scissors.
Step 13: On to the journal box: Cut out a box for writing about the experience. I used my printer to make the box and print out the journal entry and then trimmed it with my paper trimmer. You can do the same, or write your journal entry by hand for a personal touch. Then attach your photographs, mats, and journal box to the scrapbook pages.
Step 14: Finally, if you want to add this, take a photograph of the actual license (or scan it) and print it out. Trim it down and attach it to the page using your adhesive applicator.
