waxed linen thread, binder's needles, an awl, or maybe some bookcloth if that's the kind you stuff your partner might be interested in...

what size picture frame were you going to use?

and i don't know if this was the type of thing you were thinking of, but i've used fabric paint--like the puffy kind in squeeze bottles for kids-- to doodle designs on wooden picture frames before.  it's really durable and not as shiny as you'd think when it dries, you can make some cool textures, and people always assume that you're using something way cooler and more obscure than puffy paint when it's so out of context...which is always nice.

you could press the straw or hay into the surface of the paper before you roll it out and it should stay attached. i don't know how big your metal shavings are, but if they're too heavy or sharp they could keep the fibers from sticking together or just fall out when the paper is dry.  from my experience (and i'm not like a world expert so i could just not know how to do it), anything that has smooth edges--plastic, metal, ribbon, whatever--won't really hold together as part of the paper, so you might need to just glue them in, or put a clear coat of mod podge or whatever over the surface so they don't fall off later.

embossing paper is pretty easy to do...i've never tried it with homemade paper but printmaking or watercolor papers are sturdy enough that they hold their shapes really well.

hope some of this was helpful!
