Film Strip Reel

The time I saw this in Authentique's blog (http://blog.authentiquepaper.com/search?updated-max=2013-05-13T05:00:00-07:00&max-results=7&start=8&by-date=false), I was challenged to make my own version of it. What better occasion to try making this but my supervisor's birthday. So I kind of planned this out since I don't have the same tools that Loes used in her project.
     I've designed a viewmaster cut-out in Cricut Craft Room a long time ago and saved it since I haven't found any use for it in any of my projects. Finally, I found the oppurtunity. I had to re-adjust the lay-out based on Tim Holtz' Die-cut. It wasn't perfect but it came out acceptable with the imperfections unnoticeable.
     For my film strip, I used my EK Success puncher. Had to practice a couple of times to figure out how to connect the strips together.
     And now the biggest challenge is having my co-workers write their names on a cut-out paper to put inside the film strip instead of pictures as the original version has. What a better way to use my scraps! I got about 40 names total. I wasn't able to collect everybody's name since I didn't get to see everybody when I work. I also put sentiments in between batches of names.
     It was a 'gluey' experience between using different kinds of adhesives from wet to tape to glue gun. But the end result was 'wow!' Especially, when I handed this to my boss. She can't help but say, "Oh, my gosh!" And I'm glad she loved it.

Another sentiment...see my name?
I am also submitting this to Simon Stamp Say "Take A Picture" challenge. I know this is not a typical card but it was made it that way. Thanks, Loes for the inspiration.
