Make little paintings.  Or, make cards that can be hung as art above someone's desk.

You could make them in to keychains, cut them into pieces to make a mosaic, or use them to mix small bits of paint.  Cut out the centers, paint the "frame" and sandwich a mirror between two of them.  Use them as covers for mini books?

Make books or journals with formica covers!

There is a post somewhere where someone made a curtain from paint chips; you oculd do the same by hanging chains of formica.

Mosaics!

embelish them and make lovely bookmarks, keepsake gift tags, make keycains (add a clear pocket for a photo, put your business card on the other side) flooring inside a doll house, they also work awesome for scrapping gum off tile flooring ;Dd
