  • Cutting knife
  • Cutting mat or board


  • 3 block polymer clay
  • Metallic gold nail polish
  • All purpose glue


  • Preheat your oven to the temperature suggested on the clay packet.
  • Cut your clay block in half with your knife to make the whole thing thinner.
  • Cut triangles from this thickness, about an inch tall. These will be your actual holders.
  • Use your knife to cut down the middle from the top of each, just stopping short of the bottom. This will provide the slit for you photos/postcards to sit in.
  • Cut the remaining clay in half again so it’s left even thinner than before but not so thin that it becomes really flimsy.
  • Cut out medium and small triangles from this new thickness, to be used along with the larger ones later.
  • Place all of these on a tray lined with foil or baking paper and oven bake for the length of time suggested on the clay packet.
  • Once baked, leave to cool so all the shapes have hardened. And then, paint the tips with the metallic gold nail polish and leave to dry.
  • Now you can assemble the mountain holders. Squeeze a little all purpose glue on either corner of a large triangle and sit a medium and small triangle against it to create the look of a mini mountain range.
  • Make sure they sit flat against the ground and leave to dry. Repeat with the remaining shapes.
