Thanks for the reply. I want t use this with rectangular tissue boxes, when they get below half they do not pop up as usual. I'll give it a go.

not a problem Robert,if you want more bounciness in your paper spring ,you could try using thick-papers to make them.

Why are measurements omitted? Photos show 2 different size strips????

The size of the paper are not listed in the instructions,cause it depends on your use for it.(ex:-for like toys,jewelry you could use small sized paper(text book papers) ,for decoration and stuff you could use chart papers etc.)In short they don't have to have a specific size in particular.Sorry the reply was late ,was a little busy with my studies.
