Advent Calendar

Hi little penguins! Today is December 1st and it is since the beginning of November that I have been thinking of making this Advent calendar. I would have liked to present it on my blog before December 1st but it’s always like that, we finished everything at the last minute. And as I finished it yesterday, I can only show it to you today.

I wanted to make a calendar that I can reuse in the next few years. Si it must be solid, pretty and practical. I had the idea to make a small village with: houses, a church, fir trees and some diamonds that would fall from the sky. They do not really fall from the sky but they are hanging on a fir decorative tree that I already had.

PS: I try to write in english but it isn’t my mother tongue. Sorry if you find some mistakes.

Okay, great idea but now I have to create all the elements. So I drew each of the houses, the fir trees and the diamonds on Illustrator. After having printed, cut and adjusted several times my vector drawings to get the result I was looking for, here are my ready to print templates that I put at your disposal:

Once the templates are printed, follow the steps below:

  1. Tape the template on a card stock of the color of your choice, then cut the shapes using an exacto knife.
  2. For the windows, tape some tracing paper on the inside of the house.

  1. Glue all the parts together to form a house (except the bottom tabs that will be used to open your house to discover what is hidden in there).
  2. Here is a finished house. All you have to do now is to write a number on it and put some surprise inside.
