I need some help and some idea's!

Does anyone know how to make a mold? I would like to make a mold
out of this cast iron piece that went to an antique heater, I ripped apart
and made a manel out of a LONG time ago. I want to make a mold
out of the applique, I'm hoping I can make some out of the applique's
that are on the cast iron part I used to make my mantel. Now for some
isea's... I want to make something out of this piece after I make some
molds. It's pretty heavy and only has about 1 3/4 inches from the front
to the back. I was thinking of flipping it up side down and attaching
it to an old piece of wood and making it a mail holder for a front porch.
I think it would be so cute! Does anyone have any other idea's what
to make out of it? Here are the pictures:

The cast iron piece above went right under the
cast iron piece on the mantel, right under where
you see the bows and ribbon.

I know someone has an idea or two?

Some new items and my adorable Granddaughter!

I wanted to show you what else I bought at the flea market
and my adorable Granddaughter. I was doing a photo shoot
and Ava wouldn't let me take her picture which is so odd,
because she normally hams it up for the camera. I was just
about to take my first picture when she comes walking out
with a huge candy bar in her hands. Ah ha, I was able to
bribe her to get her picture. I think they turned out so cute!
First up is another old tool box I bought at the flea market
last weekend.

Correction: This is the same tool box down below, this is after I painted it.
I forgot I posted it. (Ding Dong) I thought I only posted the little blue one.
The little blue one sold within two hours after being posted on Etsy.

I just love her to pieces!
