    do you have an extra anti- static bag from a hard drive or something? you can put the CPU in that and then that will work fine too. or really any kind of like plastic ziploc back would work, something non conductive, that lets you easily package it with bubble wrap and everything.

    find a pc of foam and just cut out a little square of it to put the chip in..then cover it up with a pc of plastic and a strip of tape over it.. place in small box that the foam will fit in and secure box with packing tape, write onthe outside "Breakable DO NOT DROP"... print out shipping form tape to box and drop off at your local ship place

    Some hard drive retail kits come with foam that encase the whole drive if you have some laying around.
