When I see an empty toilet paper roll, I see it as something to toss into the recycling bin. French artist Anastassia Elias, on the other hand, sees the potential for magic! To create these miniature scenes, she makes teeny paper cutouts and painstakingly glues them in place using tweezers. All the intricate layers are brought to life with just a little bit of light, and voilà – a simple idea transforms into absolutely incredible results!
