if the with is 12 inches and the box takes thirty then you have 18 inches of ribbon left in the equation seeing how a box is a 3 dementinal figure it has 18 inches to share between 2 sides so you divide 18 by to and get 9 so the hight of your box would be 9

THE HEIGHT IS 5. 64 INCHES IN ALL. 30 FOR THE BOW. THAT MEANS YOU HAVE 34 INCHES LEFT. 12 INCH FOR THE LENGTH; BUT THERE IS THE BOTTOM AND TOP SO THAT'S 24. THAT MEANS THERE IS ONLY 10 INCHES LEFT FOR THE TWO HEIGHTS. H=5
