Colour & fold your own origami advent calendar – 25 Christmas boxes with lids




This book contains Christmas-pattern colouring sheets that you can turn into 25 origami boxes with lids to make your own origami advent calendar.

The idea is that you first cut out the colouring sheets for the boxes and their lids, then colour them and make origami boxes out of them by following the folding instructions. Finally, you place small gifts inside the boxes, tie some ribbon around them and hang them on your Christmas tree or around your home. (If you don’t have ribbon, you can also stack the boxes or line them up on a shelf.)

The folding instructions included in the book are for the traditional Japanese masu box. The size of each box is approximately 6.3cm x 6.3cm x 3cm.

In addition to this book, you will need some ribbon and little gifts to put inside the boxes to make this advent calendar.

Difficulty level:

– colouring: medium with some intricate areas

– origami: fairly easy
