Printable Stocking Advent Calendar

Surprise Me!

We love to countdown the holiday at our house with an Advent Calendar. Here is one I made using the Silhouette, but it could also be cut out by hand! The Advent Calendar is 24 pillow box stockings, just perfect for a small candy and or a slip of paper with an idea for a family activity.

If you would like to make a paper stocking Advent Calendar here are the files you will need for cutting on the Silhouette.

If you are cutting by hand here is a pdf.

Paper Stocking Advent Calendar


Cut out stockings and lightly fold on score marks.

Glue about an 2 inch circle of white paper on the back of the stocking.

Fold stocking and glue flap. Allow to dry.

Push in bottom and top flaps of the pillow box.

Glue a ribbon for hanging.

Glue an embellishment to the top if you like. I used a fur trim (two yards will be enough for all the boxes) found at the fabric store for mine. Hot glue to top front.

TaDa! You are ready to countdown to Christmas!

If you would like a Silhouette for Christmas, make sure Santa’s elves know about this  Black Friday Silhouette Deal.
