A few years ago I made little paper "crazy quilts" and framed them. I cut the letters into triangles and other shapes, and glued a bunch together onto a blank sheet, making the pieces form a rectangle. I didn't put the glue all the way to the edge, because once I had formed the rectangle I used embroidery thread to sew buttonhole and other stitches all along the "seams". They came out like like Victorian quilts. I framed them, and put a corny note when I gifted them, something to the effect of "thanks for being part of the fabric of my life"... My friends seemed appreciative. You could do a simpler version as a card.
