These little holders can be used for table numbers, photos, cards, invitations, place cards, post-it notes, and more! Little ones would be a really beautiful way to hold your seating placements actually. I think I like these best when used to display special little notes and cards.
- Polymer clay //
- Knife //
- Copper spray paint //
- Painter’s tape //
1. Take your polymer clay and roll it into a ball.
2. Take your knife and use it to create any shape you want. For the first one, I just took little sections off of the ball for a faceted shape. For the others, I made triangles of different sizes and hexagons (including a lop-sided hexagon that I quite like). 3. Once your shape is cut, use the knife to slice a small sliver at the top. This is where the photo/card will go into so test the depth with a photo to make sure it is sufficient.
4. Bake the clay according to instructions. For my clay, I baked it 30 minutes at 275 degrees. Once the clay is done baking, let the clay dry for about 30 minutes.
5. Use painter’s tape to tape off any sections that you don’t want covered with the spray paint.
6. Spray paint the clay. I only needed to do one coat. Once the spray paint is dry, take the painter’s tape off and place your photos in the holders!
My super talented sister-in-law is always sending cards. Seriously, she is the card queen. Every birthday or event she immediately sends you a thank you card for- she is so thoughtful. One time I was in Utah and went to my niece’s birthday party and two days later when I got home, I had a thank you card waiting for me. It was incredible. And these holders are perfect for showing off her endless adorable cards!
They are also great for holding all types of invitations in! And this amazing Alice in Wonderland postcard Machelle sent me!
