Typical miniature prints include two-dimensional objects, such as photographs, movie posters, rugs and wallpapers, and two-dimensional designs that can be folded into three-dimensional objects, such as boxes, books and pieces of furniture.

To create a two-dimensional object miniature print from an image, resize that image using an image editing program, such as Photoshop or the GIMP. The blog true2scale.com features a tutorial on resizing images to the right scale. The usual scale for dollhouses is 1:12; it is called "1 inch scale," because 1 scale inch corresponds to 1 full-sized foot. Other common scales are 1:6, 1:24 and 1:48.

To create printable three-dimensional object, you need to create or download a template of the paper model of the polyhedron that better resembles the object you want to create. The website korthalsaltes.com features two-dimensional models of common polyhedrons. Add texture or color to the paper model, and resize it to the appropriate scale.
