Gavin says:
@mackle my wife did one side i did the other, it took maybe 20-30 minutes. it took longer then we thought it would, especially the last box of 250. we had different techniques so it wasn't symmetrical. i think her side looked better. the kids helped get them all out so it was a family effort in the end. sadly there is no video.
