Good plastic ponies deserve treats every now and then, right?

Here’s a new set of printables for you today!

There are three flavors…

…and three sizes. Traditional, Classic…

…and Schleich. (of course you can use whichever size you like or re-size them further)

I printed mine on regular computer paper and secured them with a glue stick. I used the leftover paper to stuff the bags, then added a gloss coating.
My favorite gloss I use for printables is this one:

It doesn’t smear the ink like thinner glosses do, and really brightens up the color.

I really wanted to make some miniature horse treats to go with them, but didn’t want to deal with polymer clay, so I came up with a different solution.

I’m using a thin, sticky-backed piece of cork I found with the scrapbook paper in Hobby Lobby. I used this to make a miniature bulletin board and thought it might pass as treats too.

First I cut a couple strips, peeled off the backing and stuck them together, to give it a little more thickness. I sketched out a few treats then cut them out.

Instant heart cookies!

I hope you (and your ponies!) enjoy!

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:

Ta-da!

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!
