I have a bunch of little pics (like 8 pics to a 4x6 size) of my daughters friends at different events that I would like to do something like a filmstrip look on her lo's

I know they used to sell die cuts like that but haven't been able to find them.

has anyone seen a punch or anything like that where I could make my own?

Do you have a manual die cutter? You could try the TH die from Sizzix. I think they used to have a single slide mount die, but I can't find it here.

You could also just mat them on black paper in a row, giving the look of a filmstrip.

I've made my own filmstrip-looking mat, like Amy mentioned.

Matt with black, leaving it fairly wide on the sides. Use your hole punch to punch holes down the sides.

i have stamps, from CTMH I think, called picture perfect. They are cute. Not sure if they are big enough, but worth a look.

You could also print your own on transparency, and make it whatever size you want.

If you have one, you could use a square punch all in a row on black cardstock to make your own.

You could also mark or trace them with whatever size slot you want & cut them out with an exacto knife.

HTH!
