Recent Job: "Let's Get REEL" Invitations

Yesterday I made 30 invitations for a special event with a movie/theatre theme.
I had previously done the fliers for this event and named it "Let's Get Reel."
After creating my own version of a movie reel, I then split it up into sections to print out.
First printed each layer then cut with a circle cutter.

 Some had a bit of white remaining on the edge; simple solution: black archival ink on the edge.

The back layer had the movie reel tape coming off and the top aligned with it, however made sure the top tape was behind the "reel" and cut off the section of tape coming out of the reel.

Got out the brads.... Used a brad to attach the two sections together. Allowing them to swivel.

Last, the inner section, the actual invitation portion was attached. Folding the top part, attached it with adhesive, and then let the top swivel back over, it was done! So this is where my mind makes jokes... I was flap happy.

The Reel Invitation.
