Ever since putting the sets of dog miniatures together, I’ve been wanting to make a cat version. This originally started as a set of printables but quickly expanded.

I have six sets of miniatures available for sale. Unlike the dog sets, every piece in the cat versions was made by me. Each set includes a cube bed:

A scratching post:

A mouse, fish and feather toy, plus a bag of treats.

These sets are available here on Model Horse Place.

In addition to the minis, I have a set of free printables for you all.

On my Facebook page, I asked if other hobbyists would be willing to share photos of their cats I could use on the packaging. There were so many responses, and I tried to use as many photos as I could. Thank you to everyone who shared photos with me!!

There are six varieties of the “Noms” food bags:

These are pretty straightforward to put together.

There are four bags of treats, and a box of litter.

The treats are assembled just like the food bags, but I glued the top closed instead of folding it over.

The litter has a slot on the flap, so if you could add a handle if you’d like. This one is just a thin strip of cardstock glued in place.

The canned food is a little more time consuming.

My family calls these things “meat cans”

Each can has two strips. I cut these out with an Exacto blade and a metal ruler, but you could use scissors as well.

Start with the plain white strip and roll it tightly around a toothpick, adding a little glue to help keep it in place. (don’t glue it to the toothpick)

When you reach the end, add on the second strip, then keep rolling until the image covers the whole can.

Slide it off the toothpick and cover each end with the top and bottom image.

For best results, print at 100% on the High quality print setting. I used plain computer paper. Feel free to re-size for different scales, but please do not redistribute or sell these, thank you!

Plastic cats need to be spoiled like the ponies, right?! 😀 Have fun!

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!

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!

jahholder_02

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!
