The vintage labels produced for the dolls house scale bottles and foods are so interesting in their own right that I have posted some of them in a larger scale in the photo on this page, as much of the detail is lost in smaller scales.

The fruit and vegetable crate labels all date from the 1950's or earlier, while the pasta packaging and salmon tin are likely from the 1920s - 1940. The bottle labels are all turn of the century examples.

The labels have been reproduced scaled to their original size. The pasta packaging was not designed to be made into boxes, but was a stiff paper, wrapped around bundles of pasta. I have added box glue lines to make it easier to fold into the correct box like shape. If you prefer, you can cut scraps of scale lumber to the correct size and wrap the packaging around the wood to keep its shape. I suggest you view the packaging in the 1:6 scale pdf files (acrobat reader) before trying to make it up in 1:12 scale or smaller.

The printable files for the dollhouse scale packaging are available as pdf (acrobat reader) files from the links which follow:

If possible print the packaging on glossy standard weight paper. Alternatively you can spray a protective gloss coat over sheets printed with an ink jet printer.
