Simple Strips of Paper: Pumpkin Ornament DIY

Do you remember making these in grade school? I think that I made Christmas Ornaments in school - but really a pumpkin shape works here just as well. These would be so fun to make and put up around the house.

The quick and dirty tutorial: Cut one strip 1"x6" (strip A), two strips 1"x7" (strip B), two strips 1"x9" (Strip C), two strips 1"x11" (Strip D). Arrange them in this manner: DCBABCD. Tap them on a table so all of the ends touch -> Staple this or use a clip like I did. Now just gather all of the tops, line them up, and clip them as well. Decorate the top as desired.
Card stock: Garden Green
Designer Paper: Pumpkin Pie Prints DS Paper (retired)
Accessories: Wide Oval Punch, 1/2" square punch, black hemp twine, small clips from the clips assortment.
