Challenge accepted

About a month ago, Lauren Mauldin issued a challenge to all the artisans who read my blog.  She posted a bunch of hunter princess tack items and said, "Make these!"

One of the things on that list was a shipping halter... 
with nameplate.
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with this, but... Squee!  It's so cool! 
Of course, once I figured out how to make the nameplate, I just had to make some more.
Bribe.  Hint.
At this rate...
everything is going to have a nameplate! 
Thanks for the push, Lauren.  Now to figure out those Ogilvy pads...

  1. Those nameplates are so cute! Just a quick question, are those actually metal or are they cardstock or something similar?

    They remind me of the little name tag you put on the buckle of Jane's bridle a while ago :)

    1. I think they are caedstock, because of the way the paint is.

    4. Guessing it is some sort of printed transfer, maybe? Though I'm not sure how it would hold onto metal. Hmm...

    2. They sort of have monograms. My priner is giving the computer The Silent Treatment, so I had to draw infinity symbols by hand and glue them on. I am currently taking photos. Where should I email them to?

  8. As much as I believe in sharing information, I'm going to hold on to the nameplate secret, at least for a little while.

    (Honestly, it's not that difficult)

  15. I want a halter like this so badly! My guess is it's spare metal and either stickers or some type of stamp. Might be from a golf ball marker, I have one that stamps your name on it.
