Gospel Art Kit Scripture Sticker TutorialPosted by MeckMom on Nov 24, 2007 in Popular Posts: Free Printables, Popular Posts: LDS | 26 comments
As promised in my last post, here are your first set of Scripture Sticker instructions and files. I thought I’d start with my favorites, the scripture stickers based off of the LDS Gospel Art Kit. The files were created to be used in the LDS scripture set, but if you are not LDS and would like to enhance your Bible with the beautiful Old and New Testament images, please feel free.
The photo instructions demonstrate how to place a full-size, over-text sticker. However, the same basic instructions would apply for the footnote stickers as well. You can find all the files for the various size stickers as well as the placement guide embedded within this post. Don’t forget, you can find all the supplies you need to create these stickers in the new MeckMom.com Store. First, I’ll list a picture tutorial followed by the text version and the download links.
Step 1: Download and print your stickers on MeckMom’s Transparent Sticker Paper.
There are three basic sizes to the LDS scriptures. Choose your file based on your scripture size and where you’d like the scriptures to be placed (on the center of the page or in the footnote area). All four books of scripture are included in the file (Book of Mormon, Doctrine & Covenants, Old Testament, New Testament). The files are quite large, so expect a little delay when downloading.
- For Standard/Regular size scriptures (5.25″ x 7.25″)

Step 2: Trim your stickers.
I recommend using a straight-edge cutter like the one pictured. You won’t need anything fancy, just a nice straight edge and a very sharp blade. Don’t stress over cropping all the white area from the picture. Any remaining white space will disappear on the page once it is placed.
Step 3: Print the scripture sticker placement guide on regular paper.
These handy guides will tell you the titles, picture numbers, references, and page numbers for each scripture sticker. Once you’ve printed your guide, choose a sticker from your pile and locate it on the guide. Use the guide to find the correct page number for your sticker.

Step 4: Peel the backing from your sticker.
The adhesive used on the sticker paper is permanent, so handle it carefully. Don’t let it touch the paper until you’re ready to place it permanently.
Step 5: Place the top corners of the sticker in the desired location.
A simple post-it note can be a great guide for your sticker placement. If you don’t have one handy, just use one of the lines of text to guide your placement. The stickers can be placed over existing writing and markings. The markings will show through the image.
Step 6: Slide your fingers down the sticker to adhere it to the page.
The specialty sticker paper is designed to be smudge-free and hold the ink permanently, so feel free to give it a good rub.
Step 7: Repeat process with the rest of your stickers and enjoy!
The first sticker may be a little shaky, but you’ll get the hang of it quickly. Good luck, everyone. More to come soon. Just thought I’d pass it on.
