get it out / take to a mechanic. That's going to probably get stuck in there if you run the car.

The foil could block an oil passage so have the valve cover removed and the foil cleaned out. No big deal. I would not drive it except straight to the mechanic.

If you can see it inside of the oil fill hole you may be able to reach it with long nosed pliers. HTH. -Jim
