Ideas on how to make a piece of paper into a present?

I know it sounds odd. I'm going to surprise the boy with an early b-day present. It's the email from where I opened his CD that he set out last August to open by this December (Christmas). I funded the last bit he lacked in order to get it done (it was only $33), as I feel like 13 months of never once missing a payment for his goal, was enough. But all I have is a piece of paper now. An origami something, maybe? I dunno. I'm at a loss. I guess I could put it in a box, which is in a box, which is in a box? Or a treasure hunt? Get it, treasure? See. I'm a dweeb. Help me!

;)

I'd vote for the treasure hunt.

Apparently they never get too old for that: I did one for DD on her 35th BD, and she seemed to have just as much fun as on her 10th.

An Origami character holding it sounds good. Make it the end of the treasure hunt.

Anytime you want to give aomething that is merely a "piece of paper', lay it on a pice of thicker paper and roll it up like a diploma. Tie it with a nice black bow. If you have any pictures or something that would refer to the item, stick them around it.

These all sounds great. Better than with what I started.

Kathy, I'm 45 :) Dweeb is something I hear often since I work with a bunch of nerds. Heck, for Christmas I gave my boss a plaque with his name spelled out using chemistry symbols and the definition of a "geek" (or was it nerd?). We're proud to be dweebs, usually. Just not this time! Nerds are salt of the earth.

Lol at the word "dweebs". My kids used that term all the time.
I've been married to a "nerd, geek" for more than 50 years, and yes" Nerds are salt of the earth. " But in my experience they need some sugar and spice to balance their geek/nerdness.
