I have a Japanese style chime which I absolutely love at my house.

However, the chime's "card" at the bottom seems to have flown away in a high wind at night.

What are these "cards" at the bottom called that ring the chime and can they be bought online?

The Japanese name is zetsu (舌).
Oops, Edit: the card itself is called tanzaku (短冊), the clapper is zetsu.
