Shape And Reshape The FORMcard Into A Handle, Tool, Stand, Holder, Bowl, Whatever

FORMcard is a Low Temperature Thermoplastic card the size of a credit card which you shape into various things.

It’s been a long day for Andrew…

First there was his son’s skateboard that needed new bearings. But he didn’t own a 5/16″ wrench to remove the wheels with, so he was forced to visit a hardware store. It was month end. People were in a purchasing panic mode. It was bad.

When he arrived home from that outing, disheveled and discombobulated, his wife asked him to fix the curtain rail. But his screwdrivers’ handles were all broken.

So he had to take another trip to the shop.

At first he wanted to tell his wife that he was busy and that she’d have to wait.

But he weighed the consequences. It wasn’t that he was afraid of his wife, it’s just that he preferred sleeping indoors.

So he clamped his jaw, got into his car, drove to the store, again, and bought a set of screwdrivers.

Not long after, his wife was busy conjuring a delicious malva pudding when her favourite spatula broke.

This spelt disaster for Andrew. He needs his wife’s malva pudding. So he jumped into his car, switched on the emergency lights and rushed to a homeware shop where he bought three of the most expensive spatulas.

Then his daughter ran down the hall with a pair of scissors, tripped, fell and cut open her arm. He had to rush her to hospital.

It’s been a rough day indeed.

But if Andrew owned a pack of FORMcards, things could have gone smoother.

Let’s take a closer look…

What is it?

The FORMcard is a thin plastic card the size of a credit card. It fits inside your wallet.

It’s made from a low temperature thermoplastic material.

Easy to use

Here’s how to use the FORMcard, in five easy steps:

  1. Pour hot water into a cup.
  2. Drop the FORMcard into the water.
  3. Wait for it to go soft.
    • It takes a few seconds.
  4. Remove it.
    • It’s hot. Don’t use your fingers. Use a spoon.
  5. Mould it into whatever you need.


FORMcard comes in 14 colours:

  1. Black
  2. White
  3. Grey
  4. Red
  5. Navy blue
  6. Yellow
  7. Green
  8. Orange
  9. Pink
  10. Light blue
  11. Khaki green
  12. Fluorescent pink
  13. Fluorescent yellow
  14. Fluorescent orange

There are enough colours to please the whole family.

The FORMcard comes in a myriad colours.


Once the FORMcard is set, it’s roughly as strong as nylon.

FORMcard has some flex, which ensures that it handles stress well.

Quick hardening

Once you remove the FORMcard from hot water, it sets in two to three minutes.

This gives you enough time to shape it to your needs.


They make FORMcard from a non-toxic biodegradable polymer. It’s eco-friendly.


You can use The FORMcard for a thousand different things.

Use it as a makeshift handle for a tool; shape it into a spanner; make a hook of it; make a mobile phone stand. You’re faced with endless possibilities.

Here are a few examples from their website…


If you’re not satisfied with your FORMcard’s current shape, place it back into hot water, wait for it to soften and reshape it.

It should give you years of usage.

Final thoughts

I love the FORMcard.

It’s one of the finest products I’ve ever seen.

At first glance it doesn’t look like much. It’s a plastic card, after all.

But once you see that you can use it for a thousand different things, you’ll want a packet or ten of these.

It’s easy to use. Pop it into a cup of hot water, remove and mould.

It’s versatile. From handles to hooks, sandals to books, a pot or a pan, just short of a snook, the FORMcard offers too many usage options to mention here.

It’s eco-friendly. The FORMcard doesn’t mess with the environment. This is a crucial comfort, since plastic is one of the biggest polution culprits.

I recommend you take a look at the FORMcard. Send me a few packs while you’re at it. I’d appreciate that.
