This post provides custom backgrounds for your LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar 2016 (75146) collection suitable for use with the IKEA® RIBBA Frame 23×23cm (9×9″).
Refer to my post How to display your LEGO® Minifigures using IKEA® RIBBA Frames for full assembly instructions on framing your collection.
I have provided four variations of background image for the LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar 2016 collection, hopefully catering to everyone’s tastes and requirements.
Each of the Minifigures, micro-Buildings and micro-Vehicles in this collection have been carefully positioned to ensure that every piece will fit neatly within the frame area. A copy of the official LEGO® Star Wars™ Advent Calendar 2016 assembly instructions can be found here.
