How To Make Your Own Printable “Santa’s Driver’s License”

Share this project

Being a mom of littles is such a fun time for Christmas magic! The first year, Santa left footprints behind, then last year he snagged his coat on the door and a button fell off, this year he’s going to drop his driver’s license on our porch. Since I made this for my kids I wanted to share the project idea and printable with you guys too! Stop by our digital craft file shop to download our exclusive printable design now! Check out our Instagram Reels to watch me make this live!

Trim Down To Size

Using scissors or a paper trimmer, trim the license down to size. Which will be 2 1/8″ x 3 3/8″.

Join + Round

Tape the front and back together using double sided tape, or glue stick. Then round the corners if you’d like, I think it adds a nice touch.

Laminate

Using a real laminator, or self laminating pouches like I am here, seal the printable so it looks like a real driver’s license. Then trim and round the corners again.
