as far as the tape, I used it on tags for Christmas and ran it through my big shot for the embossing effect, really looked cute....

you could use alum. foil.... right now I'm in on an atc swap and I have taken some of those coffee sleeves and used the inside...I scrunched up then straightened out the foil, painted it black then wiped it off, glued it to the inside of the coffee sleeve, when dry I used a little gold rub n buff...

but the metal can be a metal charm, clip, chain, or dangle of some sort, look through your stash, or the junk drawer in the house, or sneak out and see if DH might have some washers, screws bolts, chicken wire, just see what you might have around the house that's metal.
