Adventskalender to Go


For my friends I made this “Adentskalender to Go”. It contains a blister pack with cough sweets / chocolates – for each day one. A funny little gift. The german die cut saying means “For You”. I’ve recently won this Die and it fit perfectly for this project.

Für meine Freunde habe ich diese “Adventskalender to Go” gemacht. Er enthält eine Blisterpackung Pulmoll/Schokolinsen – für jeden Tag eins. Eine witzige Kleinigkeit. Euch Deutschen muss ich keinen Adventskalender erklären, deshalb nur für meine weltweiten Besucher. Die Stanze “Für Dich” ist vom Creativ-Depot – ich habe sie erst kürzlich gewonnen und sie war hierfür genau richtig !

Here in Germany children get an Advent calendar on 01.December. Until Christmas (Dec, 24th here in Germany) they are allowed to open one door every day. Chocolate is usually hidden behind it. There are now countless variants and most of them I find very exaggerated. But so is today.

  • Ok, to make these cute litte give-a-ways you need:
  • Cardstock 9cm x 13cm (score at 8cm, 9cm, 17cm and 18cm)
  • Cardstock 2cm x 5 cm (score at 2 cm and 3cm)
  • Designpaper, Embellishments how you like, Strong Adhesive,
  • Icon “Adventskalender to Go” from Colorspell
  • Adventskalender

This guide I found myself in the www and it is for me the simplest. It’s done quickly. Diese Anleitung habe ich selbst im Internet gefunden und es ist für mich die einfachste. Es ist schnell gemacht.


Decorate it as you like it. And put on some glue and stick the box together. I took sticky tape here. Dekoriere wie es Dir gefällt, bringe den Kleber auf und klebe die Box zusammen. Ich habe Sticky Tape verwendet.


The small piece of cardstock is used as a “stopper” so the calendar does not slip. It is glued to one end. Der kleine Streifen Papier wird als Stopper verwendet damit der Kalender nicht herausrutscht. Er wird an ein Ende eingeklebt.


A ribbon is attached around the calendar so that it can be easily pulled out. Um den Kalender ist ein Schleifenband befestigt, damit er einfach herausgezogen werden kann.


And so it looks when he’s done. Und so sieht er dann aus wenn er fertig ist.

I have already made 13 pieces of it. All in different colors but the same style. I think it´s a fun little gift for friends and relatives. Ich habe bereits 13 Stück davon gefertigt. Alle in verschiedenen Farben aber die gleich Machart. Ich finde es eine nette Kleinigkeit für Freunde und Verwandte.

    Hallo liebe Imke, das ist ja eine tolle Alternative zu der Schneidvariante mit der Silhouette Cameo. Einfach und schnell nachzubasteln. LG Betty

    With the elements lined up on the photo it looks quite simple to make. But you still need to find the design idea and choose what to use, and you made great choices:)
