SUPPLIES
4 blocks of 2oz. oven-bake clay (in desired colors)
Knife
Paintbrushes
Gold acrylic paint
White acrylic paint
Hot glue gun or super glue
Photos

INSTRUCTIONS
1.Cut the depth of the blocks of clay in half so you have two thinner pieces of equal size.

2. With one of those pieces, cut out a triangle.

3.Starting at one of the corners, cut down the depth of the triangle like you were making it thinner, not cutting it all the way through. This is going to be the slot that holds your photo. This will be the “main mountain.”

4.With remaining clay, cut out additional triangles in varying sizes. Cut the depth of them in half so you are left with smaller, thinner triangles.

5.Place all of your triangles on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake according to the instructions on the clay package.

6.Once they have finished baking and cooling, paint a tip on each “mountain” with the gold or white paint. Let dry.

7. Assemble your mountain trio starting with the main mountain in the back and the thinner, smaller mountains in the front. Glue pieces together with hot glue or super glue.

8. Once the glue is dry, decorate your mountains with your favorite photos.

*A fun alternative for these photo holders would be to glue a magnet on the back  and use them on your refrigerator.
