A Little Robot Advent Calendar

Have you already made your advent calendar yet?
Do you have any idea or buy some for this Christmas?
Nicx at Next to Nicx blog have uploaded the cute Robot Advent Calendar template
for you to download. This one is without charge \(^_^)/

They're realy cute ^^

For this project you’ll need:
  • 12 sheets of 220 gsm cream card
  • A printer (I used an inkjet as it seems to take the card a lot better)
  • Double sided tape or quick drying glue
  • A ruler
  • An x-acto knife or scalpel
  • Some ribbon or bakers twine if you intend to hang them up
  • Little presents
Each of these little guys ends up 6cm tall and 4.5cm wide. The head is 4.5 cm wide x 2.8 cm tall x 2.8 cm deep (the perfect size for a little present or chocolate!)

To start, print the PDF file below onto 12 sheets of A4 220 gms card in your choice of colour.
Then cut out each body and head using an x-acto knife and ruler. Score along the dotted lines.

Fold along the two dotted and scored lines on the body of the robot. This makes his base.

Next, fold along all the dotted and scored lines on the head piece.

Carefully place the ‘neck’ tab into the two slots on the base of the head as shown.

At this point he looks a bit like this!

Place double sided tape or glue onto the 4 box side support tabs as shown.

At this point you fill his cute little head with sweet ideas!

Fold down the two large side pieces and fold up the two little support brackets.

Then fold in the small back panel and bring the top of his head over into place.
Sliding the locking tab into the cut on the back panel.
The two little support brackets slide into place where his antenna is.

And he’s finished!
Straighten up his antenna and create his 23 little friends and you’re ready to thread them all
onto a ribbon or to hook them onto a tree or wreath.

Or you can purchase the printed, cut and scored pieces here 

Thank you so much for your kindness, Nicx.
