Amazing toilet paper roll art

Anastassia Elias spends hours painstakingly cutting out tiny shapes to make detailed models - and then fits them inside used toilet rolls. Elias, 37, uses paper the same color as the cardboard tubes to build up the intricate scenes from wildlife to construction sites.
A professional painter and illustrator by trade, Elias uses manicure scissors and a scalpel to create the shapes which she then manipulates into position using tweezers. Taken between 2009 and 2012, Elias has so far created 75 toilet roll designs which are on display in her new book entitled "Rouleaux"
