Whatever Wednesday: Paper Pumpkin

I saw this cute idea here and had to make one! Instead of using 6 inch strips, I used 24 1"x12" strips to make mine. I punched a holed in each strip and connected them on with a brad on the top and the bottom. Then I added a paper stem and some raffia. Super easy!
