Introduction: Little Mr Robot Advent

About: Nicx is a designer, letterpress printer, maker, event planner and (gluten free) home baker. Wanderer. Lover of cocktails in teacups. Australian expat residing in Lausanne, Switzerland
A friend of mine dropped into conversation that she thought that I sketch I’d done years ago would look rather cute as an advent calendar. So I spent a little time this week playing with it to see if I could get it to work. Et voilà!! Here is the result!

The tutorial and templates are available to download here

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!)

Awesome idea! Just a quick note to potential makers of this project: the downloadable template is no longer free, but for a few dollars, I think it's worth it. Keep up the good work.
