    Go to a craft store and buy gold ribbon that is used for sewing, very good match.

    > Dollar Tree carries metallic foil wrapping paper that may not match, but looks cool.

    > I replaced the metallized vinyl(?) "foil" in a GFS "Gold Foil" with copper mesh, solder-tacked to the cover.
    I got the mesh from my POSSLQ's dad's workshop, but here's a source:
    Copper Mesh Coarse Dense Gauze Mesh #10 20 40 60 80 100 200,width 3" to 20" #VB

    I just bought some stamped brass hoping it'd work but it was, unfortunately, way too thick.
