Crepe Paper Spiral

Crepe paper streamers to decorate gyms and carnival booths seem old school. When cleaning out the art room, I uncovered a spiral, layers of colors of vintage crepe paper.  A couple of rolls were stained and faded but I took them out of the plastic wrappers, 49 cent pricetags. Who wound the spiral and why?        “a spiral emanates from a central point, getting progressively farther away as it revolves around the point.” wikipedia

Remember crepe paper streamers?
Remember twisting colors together, taping them up, then they'd droop?
