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!

  1. Thanks for the download. I played around with it a bit in Silhouette Studio, because the first time I cut it out it took an eternity to cut all those little circles for perforations. Instead, I just traced some lines and set them to perforate instead of cut. Much quicker! Thanks so much for a great idea and for designing the file. I really appreciate it.

  2. This looks fantastic! Will be downloading this one for sure 😀 Thank you 🙂

    Is that just ric rac that you are using to string the stocking up?

  3. This is adorable.. Thank you so much for sharing the silhouette files. Can’t wait to get these started.

  4. Thank you so much for the download…very cute. I downloaded them all but when I opened up the file for day 3-4 the numbers on the stockings were 1 and 2 any chance of getting a file with 3-4 on the stockings? Thanks again, these are great.

  5. This is such a great idea and it looks wonderful! I love the white and the red together. Perfect! 🙂
