  Largest Ball of Paper-world record set by Enrique Miramontes and Ricardo Granados

  SAN DIEGO, CA, USA -- Enrique Miramontes and his friend Ricardo Granados created a giant ball made of paper which now weighs 200 pounds and is 3 feet high-setting the world record for the Largest Ball of Paper.
   Photo: Miramontes uses several pieces of 8 x 11 paper and layers them on top of each other to build the ball. He used to work on the project three hours a day but has scaled back to about an hour a day, he said. (enlarge photo)

  Miramontes gets used paper from friends who get it from their schools or workplaces. And he uses only masking tape, which is made from paper.

   These days, Miramontes works on the ball alone. Granados moved out of state about three years ago but sends money to buy tape.   

 They started making the ball in 2003. Year after year it amassed and Miramontes now 23 wondered what to do with it.

 Once it gets bigger Miramontes fully expects it to reach 12 feet high he'll need to find a place to store it. His girlfriend can barely roll it out of the way to clean. I used to complain, but now I'm used to it, said Michele Trujillo.

 Already he has a Web site dedicated to the ball, which now sits between the television and couch at his San Ysidro home.    

  In the six years Miramontes has worked on the ball, he has spent $3,000 on masking tape, 2,015 hours on the ball and 300 hours on the Web site, which launched in January.
