Still lifes in toilet tubes

Still lifes in toilet tubes

I love these little cardboard dioramas inside of toilet paper tubes, crafted by artist Anastassia Elias. Spotted on Boing Boing. I was touched by part of Cory’s post:

Empty-loo-roll-day is always fun around our place, the cue to get out the stickers and markers and decorate the empty tube with Poesy [his daughter], then run around the house playing kazoo or telescope. Maybe we’ll level up to tiny still lives in a couple of years.

*I* wanna live at Uncle Cory’s house!

    My 7 year old daughter insists on saving the tubes. She hides them so I will not throw them away. Now I know what we can do with them.
