The Advent calendar for on the way – simply senstational!

Christmas handcrafting can easily be done in the month of December before Christmas – an advent calendar, however, is needed relatively early. The weeks before Christmas often are rather hectic with a seamlessly never-ending stream of appointments to keep. Our crafting idea should help you to keep track: The advent calendar for on the way is made quickly and can be folded together.

This is what you need:
Green and red colored paper, download templates, Wonderliner in silver and gold, brads, hole punch and a pair of scissors, a Griffix fountain pen to decorate.

It’s as easy as this:

  1. Print out the download templates onto the green (circles) and red (points) colored paper and carefully cut out all parts.
  2. Punch holes into the pointed paper strips on the provided markings.
  3. First stick a brad through the middle of the green colored paper circle.

 

Then „thread“ the 24 red paper strips with the flat side onto the brad. When all parts are on top of each other, bend the two ends of the brad apart.

The green circle and all red parts are threaded onto the brad.

Inscribe and decorate the red strips as you like.

 

4. As soon as the advent calendar is put together, the numbers 1 to 24 are written onto the pointed ends of the red paper strips with a golden Wonderliner. If you like, you can decorate the free space with little poems, quotes or wishes. For easy and clean writing, we recommend our Griffix fountain pen. Due to its good handling, it is particularly suitable.

5. Now the Advent calendar can be folded together and be kept safely stored until its first use.

Hint: Loom a colored piece of string through the pointed ends of the calendar. It will show you the right day and also can be used well as a hanger for the calendar.
