Printable Miniature Greeting Cards

The nice thing about designing a Hobbit hole diorama is that you can include little things that might appear out of place and even a little anachronistic in most other fantasy-medieval settings. Take greeting cards, for example. One would not expect to see these in a medieval castle, or even an elven haven. But we all know, of course, that hobbits celebrate their birthdays by throwing parties, and like giving away presents. We also know that they take great pride in writing letters to their friends and relatives. So it only seems natural that they would send each other birthday cards as well, although these may not be printed but hand-drawn.

These miniature cards are designed for use with 28mm scale miniatures. Once they have been printed out, all you need to do is fold them over at the middle. They can then be placed on a table or a shelf, to look like an old birthday or greeting card that has been stood up on that surface.

For instructions on how to print these out from your home computer, go to this page.
