Yet more printies

The lockdown over the last three months has prevented me buying any new materials. Most of the companies I use were closed altogether, some provided mail order but I felt uneasy burdening an already busy Royal Mail with 'non critical' deliveries.
It occured to me that I don't utilise readily available materials around the house as much as I could. I have a pretty good printer/scanner and an abundance of full scale food packaging that I could scale down for use in miniature. Anything bigger than my A4 scanner bed proved a pain; cutting the packaging up, scanning and then restitching it in design software, but it was doable. If you don't have a scanner, it's possible to photograph food packaging and resizing it in photo editing software.


It's no coincidence that a lot of these packages are sweet stuff 😂 Until I learn how to sculpt fruit and vegetables, my food miniatures will always look unhealthy!

If you want a copy of the food packaging to make for yourself, you can find the link HERE or from the 'PRINTIES' link in my blog header.

Back to the scanner
Have a great week
Pepper 😊

  1. Thank you so much, Pepper for sharing these with us after all the work it took to make them! I also downloaded the file with the amazon boxes. Would you have any idea where I might find a source for 1:12 scale "bankers boxes" or maybe they're called "file boxes" in your neck of the woods. I need lots and lots of them for a project I am currently working on and would love to make them myself if I could find a file - doesn't have to be a free file. Thanks, Pepper, for all that you do. Stay safe! - Marilyn D., New Brunswick, Canada

      Could you send me a picture of the file boxes to pepper03@hotmail.co.uk? I'm happy to draw up the file if I know what it is.

  9. No need for a bad conscience... you've eaten that stuff for a good cause because what could be better than sharing? And you did not forget to add the toothpaste so the toothfairy has no need to complain neither... ;O) Thanks for sharing even more stunning printies.
