Prince Albert tin flowers

 Hey blogger friends!
I have a fun altered project to show you today.
A vintage Prince Albert can filled with vintage mold flowers.
I really don't know what these molds were used for, I know there are Jello molds, I have some that say Jello on the bottom. They may be candy or cake molds? I don't know.

I have collected them for quite awhile.
The first things I made were Christmas ornaments. I have some tiny ones that aren't pictured below, I forget to get them out, you can see the ornaments here and a Halloween bouquet here. I've picked up a few Prince Albert can's too. I have one on my fridge, I use it to hold pens and a tablet for grocery lists.
This one is a giant fridge magnet, a pretty decoration for the fridge!
I plan on making fridge magnets out of the big ones, just the flower with a magnet on the back.
You could use it for any decor you want.
 I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks to color the flower petals. Just squeeze it on the flower and smear it around with a q-tip, so easy!
I almost forgot, it the past I used tin snips to cut between each scallop, this time I couldn't find them, so I used Tim Holtz Tonic scissors, worked like a charm!
Supplies:
ink - distress vintage photo and antique linen, adirondack alcohol ink in red pepper, terra cotta, denim and bottle. paper - prima nature garden 6x6 paper stack. (center of flowers) acces. - prince albert can, tin molds, wood shish-kebab skewers (stems), tissue tape, prima wood embellishments (leaves) crinkle ribbon, magnets, ideaology fasteners and findings. tools - tim's scissors, 1 1/2 circle punch, crop a dile, glue gun, e6000 and blending tool.

Well, that's it!

I love all metal things - I loved your repurposed jello/cake mould flowers. The inking is superb as well. I am going to subscribe to you as soon as I finish typing this!
