Paper folding in 3ds max

I've been trying to find a good tutorial on how to make paper-folding animations in 3ds max. I need to make an animation of a parcel wrapping and unwrapping (no hands, just the paper wrapping itself around a box).
I tried this once using FFDs. It worked ok for 'straight' folds but got very fiddly when it came to doing more complex 'triangular' folds like the ones you often have to do at either end of a parcel to make it look neat.
Has anyone done this kind of animation. Any advice or links to helpful tutorials would be much appreciated.
