help, I'm stupid

I dropped a 1/16" sqaure piece of plastic in the oil fill while changing the oil. Will the filter catch it or will cause damage to the valves or anything else. Am I going to have to pull the pan and the valve cover to try to recover the piece. I ran 5 quarts of oil through twice trying to flush it out. no luck. Any suggestions, thoughts????

plastic should not do any big damage, over time it may find it's way to the filter, id hope for that, but don't worry too much about it, pretty small piece
