Normally after the paper on the toilet roll gets over, what happens to the roll?'s usually thrown away. But Annastassia Elias, a talented artist in the field of painting and illustration based in Paris, does something quite unique and interesting with the empty toilet roll. She converts toilet paper rolls into amazing works of art. She cuts small paper shapes and sticks them inside the toilet rolls creating tiny scenes. Each piece of art takes few hours to complete. 

“One day I looked at an empty roll and wondered if I can do something with it,” said Annastassia Elias. “I use tweezers to manipulate the paper shapes. I select the paper of the same color as the roll. It gives the illusion that the paper figures make part of the roll,” said the artist.
