i have a couple hundred formica samples. they are about 2" x 1.5" in size, with a hole in one end, various colors and textures. they are very rigid and I don't know how to cut them. any ideas about what to do with them? Huh

They cut really easily with a jeweler's hand saw. I recommend that you wear a dust mask.

Carol Duvall had something on her show with these, it involved embossing powder, a heat tool, and a stamp.  I think they made pendants.  Try the HGTV website for that episoide.

I would think if you had something sharp enough and alot of time and patience and a steady hand you could cut it a little at a time.

Those who hold on to broken dreams often get cut by their sharp edges.
