After making the yellow Breyer boxes in miniature, I knew I wanted to make a second set using images from the vintage picture boxes. I’m not a vintage collector and don’t know much about these at all, but as a miniature-addict of sorts I wanted to include them in my expanding mini-Breyer collection.

I have none of these boxes in my collection so photos were generously shared with me by Faracat and aneedforfun over on Blab – thanks again for your pictures!!

Like the yellow boxes these come in two sizes – micro/mini whinny and H0/1:87 scale. The micro ones were made with mini whinnies in mind, so they’re quite large in 1:9 scale. Personally I think they would be fun to store small tack and props in… or maybe something else, I’m sure you guys could come up with something more creative. ^_^

The H0 ones are significantly smaller…

… but they fit in a 1:9 scale world much better. 🙂

Assembly is a lot easier than the yellow boxes, as these are literally plain box tops & bottoms with no pesky windows to cut out. I put mine together with a glue stick and (as always) scored them before folding to get a nice shape.

I didn’t make every single box I had a photo of – experience has taught me that while it’s fun to have lots and lots of variety, putting together dozens of printable minis is a lot more work than you would think. (or maybe that’s just me… I have had so little energy lately, sorry) Anyway, I chose six favorites that were the most editable and this was the end result.

My favorites have to be the white boxes. (but I have such a soft spot for the FAS too!)

I’ve managed to get that cold I’ve been trying to avoid for months. I hate flu season, agh. 😛

I haven’t been in the mood for tack/sewing, but I did manage to finish up some printables I had on my PC for a while. These are some of my JAH (Just About Horses) magazines, scanned and miniaturized in Photoshop. I also threw a box catalog and a template for a magazine holder in there as well.



Because I am picky about mini printables, they all have their back covers included too:


Each one also has a spread for the inside, making them “readable” but not too thick. I put these together by running a glue stick along the fold.


To make the magazine holder, cut around the template and glue to the back of a piece of patterned/colored paper:


Score along the fold lines (I use a metal ruler and the back of an exacto blade to do this) and cut the entire thing out. Remember to cut the tabs on the bottom!


Fold it together and glue in place. I did cut one of the tabs off and shortened the longer ones here:




The box catalog was assembled like the magazines, but I glued the white sides of the paper together instead of just at the spine.



I LOVED these things and remember spending ages going through them, making wishlists.


Have fun and enjoy!

Last August I started putting together labels for fictional brands of horse shampoo/fly spray/etc. I got distracted and misplaced the file on my pc. I did end up finding it after panicking for a bit – serves me right for saving model horse files outside of the “Model Horse” master folder of chaos.

Anyway, since it’s Spring (nearly Summer!) I figured now would be a good time to get these pieces finished up.


Here’s a PDF file of the labels… some are entirely made up by me while others are obvious imitations of real brands.

I printed these up on plain computer paper – nothing fancy- then went over them with Triple Thick Gloss to give them some shine. I like this gloss for paper printables as it doesn’t smear the ink like some others do.


The bottles themselves I sculpted from polymer clay. Despite my best efforts some still came out a bit lopsided argh!


But after being painted, labelled and glossed, they seemed to turn out all right.



Also included is a bunch of labels for “Unicorn Dust” which is hoof glitter or whatever glitter you’d like it to be. Why am I so attracted to glitter on horses WHYYYY…

I made these from cut pieces of wooden dowels, which I covered with glitter and clear packing tape.


The mini towels I cut from baby washcloths I found at the dollar store. These things are cheap and thin, which makes them great for minis. The pink piece is a scrap of suede.


I also wanted to make some grooming mitts, so I started by tracing around a Yvonne doll’s hand…


And used that as a template to cut mitts out of various materials. First attempt was a rubber glove. Mine has this textured bit on the ends, so I figured I’d use that for one side of a mitt.



It did not want to be turned inside out but I got it to cooperate eventually:


I also made one from this textured fabric I had on hand… it was from a cheap mini tote bag of sorts… I’m thinking it was from a party supply shop or dollar store? Anyway it behaved a lot better than the rubber glove did:


Yay oven grooming mitts!


With some paint:


I also made one from the baby washcloths, and I think this is my favorite.


Hope you enjoy! 🙂
