    How to Make it:

    step1
    Print template and pictures
    Download our Advent Calendar template, which includes the house design and the picture layout template.Select 24 pictures and print them small - wallets may work best, then trim them to fit the picture layout template. Tip: If you use photo editing software, open the picture layout template and add the pictures directly to the template, then print it as one sheet that will fit directly behind the house template.

    Cut open windows panels

    On the house printout, cut three sides of each window with an exacto knife. If you do not have an exacto knife, you can use a coupon cutter or the pointy end of a pair of scissors.

    Glue pictures

    After you've selected and printed your pictures, cut them to fit the picture layout template, then glue them down. If you've used a photo editing software, you can skip this step.

    step18(18)
    Assemble calendar
    Glue the house page over the top of the pictures page, lining them up carefully. You may want to pull back the flaps and peek to be sure that the pictures line up with the "windows".

    Starting on December 1st, open one window for each day of December, revealing the picture underneath. Happy Holidays!
