    No D: I haven't been able to get the stuff for it, been really busy. Once I do get the stuff I'll be sure to post some pictures.

    oh dear :D Did you use tape to help hold the strips down as you worked with them? Because it's really difficult otherwise :)

    If I used larger, thicker strips to make a bigger ball this would work out ok wouldn't it? Do you have a width to length ratio for the strips?

    I've found a 20:1 length:width ratio works for the strips.
