I recently ordered some paper on sale from SEI, and it was packed with this wad of paper, it looked like a big brown piece of ribbon candy in the box. So I took it and wrapped some wire around the center to hold the shape. Then added a few things to the center and called it done. I just wish I would've taken before and during pictures, sorry I can't share that with you, but here is the finished box. It is a little larger than 12 inches.
