These are cool; they also look easy to do... but clearly they're not. *imagines trying, then stabbing her fingers with a pen knife and trying to fling toilet paper tubes covered in glue around a room*

Shade Plant: Might be easier with an Xacto knife, but I doubt it.

So, I can't tell from the pictures: is the silhouette cut from the inside layer of the tube, or does she cut all the way through the tube, or is she using other material and then inserting it in the tube? Whatever it is, I'm impressed. She must have tiny fingers.

"I cut the small paper shapes that I stick inside the toilet paper rolls. I use tweezers to manipulate the paper shapes. I selecte the paper of the same color as the roll. It gives the illusion that the paper figures make part of the roll. I need few hours to make one piece."

These are pretty cool!

My hero! Every time I throw away a toilet paper roll I think "I really should come up with some creative way to use these." I'd like to try something like this toilet paper wall art thingy if I had the wall space. Or DIY Toilet Roll Pixel Boy. I could handle those projects. Sadly, these delicate toilet paper roll cutouts, like Ms. Elias' silhouettes, are beyond my scope.

I normally use empty TP rolls to make shreddable toys for my parrot. Too bad she doesn't do something like this instead of just reducing them to confetti.

All I thought I could do with empty TP rolls is talk into them to frighten the cat...
