Modeling a metal ribbon into a spiral (developable into a rectangle)


how could I model and manipulate a curved surface that is always developable into a rectangle, in other words the surface should act as a very long metal ribbon/band.

My goal is to model a spiral which has a few loops and I would like to be able to edit the size of the loops as well as the height of the entire spiral and some control points.

I have included a picture of a metal ribbon curved into a spiral that should clarify the concept.

Any hints would be appreciated, thanks!
