Paper City Christmas Advent Calendar

Who lives on Christmas Street? This printable Christmas advent calendar has every house on the street from 1 to 24. Create these easy-to-make match box size houses and buildings and children can visit each house everyday until Christmas.

They make cute decorations or play sets. Display them neatly in one long line along a wall or shelf, create your own little village, hang them on the tree, or scatter them around the house! There’s a black and white only version too so you can color and decorate each one as you like. Make them as colorful as you want!

Hide little treats or activity ideas of the day inside. Or place inside little people or animals who live in the houses. Every house has a story.

How to make
this Christmas Advent Calendar

Print the pages and cut out each shape. Use heavy weight papers so the boxes are sturdy.

Score the grey dotted lines and fold. Glue angular tabs to complete the houses, but do not glue curved tabs as they are there to help the lids (top of each building) stay in place.

Hope you enjoy this one! We had fun making it! Have a look at our other advent calendar too, if you’re still looking for more ideas!

  1. Hey! This is really lovely. Thank you so much. I downloaded the color one, but there seem to be missing the last page (houses 22-24). Will they be added or should I simply print out the bw ones? πŸ™‚ Thank you and lovely greetings.

    • It’s formatted as letter but you should be able to print on A4 without scaling. However I’d check if the artwork is cut off in the preview.

      • Awesome options here on the overall site to make an occasion more special & creative! Have chosen a few already for my son’s upcoming b’day party…

        Can most of these be printed on cards or only normal papers apply?

        • It depends really, I print some crafts projects on matte inkjet paper (card stock around 50-60lb). But when I don’t need much strength I also use normal papers too.

          • Hello thr! these were a hit at the party…
            I just tried a little more stuff with the party inivites with ribbons instead of threads n colored the window frames too…they looked fab!
            thanks again! πŸ™‚

    • THATS AWESOME!!! superb! I am glad they are soo tiny because my shelving display unit is quite petite. these will be a perfect fit! Thank you for sharing your photos!

    • How did I miss this? I just saw it. Fantastic job! Love the colors you chose & all the details, thanks for sharing! : )

  2. WOW! LATE OR NOT I AM PRINTING THIS TODAY!!! I CANNOT thank you enough!!! I also just scooped up a simple wooden old second hand drawer from the neighbours bulk garbage day for a display shelf. I hate picking up things without having a purpose for them! So you’ve completed my FREE #christmasdiy’s Thank you. What a great day! Jeanine, Canada!

  3. I’m having difficulty opening the download so I can have this calendar for next Christmas. Is there any way to get the templates other than by downloading. Please understand, I am rather old and am not very good with this type of getting templates. Thanks for any help. Amber

    • Hi Amber, normally the file will open in your browser when you click it and you can print from there. Otherwise please try Adobe Acrobat reader. You can download it here (free)
      then open the file with it. If it’s a different kind of problem, please let me know more detail, I’ll see if I can help!

  4. Thank you ! I’m 16 years ans I made this calendar for my little sister. She will receive in a week and she is excited ! πŸ™‚ It’s easy to make and so nice !

  5. Do you have the same printable but bigger? I would like to do an advent calendar but with medium boxes, those are really tinny.
