  1. Download and print the Advent calendar pages.

  2. Use a pair of scissors or another paper cutting device to cut out each of the number cards and illustrated cards. (Do your best to keep the numbers paired with the correct illustration!)

  3. Prepare your Advent calendar format. (The below instructions will apply for those that want the calendar look like the one in our photo, but feel free to style your calendar in your own way too.)

  4. Cut 5 lengths of ribbon (or hemp/twine) to fit inside the photo frame and glue the ends to the back of the frame.

  8. Each day in December, either remove or flip back the number card to reveal the illustration, and re-hang them on the calendar.
