Advent Calendar

I haven’t decided whether this advent calendar is very early or very late! Best to be early I think. I saw this whilst trawling through various book folding web sites. The pattern is by Maria Christensen,


The little boxes are not only individually numbered but also have a letter on the opposite side to the number which can be used to spell out a Christmas message. I chose to use the first few words of a Christmas carol – Silent Night, Holy Night.

I had intended to make a couple of these calendars for the families of our two daughters but after all the repetitive folding and cutting needed to make one I almost lost the will to live! DH and I will share this one as it is sure to be one of those items that comes out every year!

Thanks for looking x

  1. Early or late it’s an amazing project – I would have given up a few folds in. I am very impressed.
