Make: Free printable advent calendar from Mibo

Christmas preparations are in full swing at our house and we have started our annual advent calendar to count down the days to the big one. Do you have one? It's not too late!

Our advent calendar was designed by UK designers Mibo a few years ago and we have been using the same calendar each year. Simply print out the first page (day numbers) on card stock and use a craft knife and board to cut along the dotted window lines. Then print out the second page on normal paper, glue the two pieces together, punch two holes at the top and add a festive ribbon to hang. Easy!

Some advent calendars have a small chocolate or treat for each day. Our Mibo design just reveals a cute picture each day and our girls seem to be just as excited. If you would like to download a free advent calendar by Mibo head to this page for Mibo's new 2012 design. You can also purchase this version which is also cute. The 2009 version that I used above is no longer available. I'd love to hear all about your advent traditions - please let me know!
