Child's Play All Grown Up! Artist Creates Masterful Dioramas with Toilet Paper Rolls (PHOTOS)

If you thought helping your kid create a diorama using a shoe box and some Legos for a social studies project was tedious, be prepared to feel . . . unskilled.

French artist Anastassia Elias usually paints and illustrates, but she took a break from all of that to master the art of toilet paper roll dioramas. She cuts small paper shapes that she sticks inside the toilet paper rolls, using tweezers to manipulate the paper shapes. By using paper of the same color as the roll, she says “it gives the illusion that the paper figures make part of the roll.”

You’ll never look at a toilet paper roll the same way again, and while you may try this at home, it’s doubtful your results will be quite so masterful. Take a look at some of Elias’ astounding toilet paper roll art creations:
