Anastassia Elias is a French painter and illustrator who does some pretty fascinating cut paper collages using... of all things... empty toilet paper rolls. This one is titled Grandmother. Just tiny bits of mundane cardboard, but I love the way her fine cuts bring scenes to life.
And here is School.
Enjoy more of Anastassia's work on her website, including lovely torn paper and newsprint collages like Square...
Now then, ahem, since toilet paper is already out of the closet for today... I must admit I wasn't aware of toilet paper origami. It even has a name... toilegami.Perhaps we're all familiar with the triangle fold, but I bet the more intricate designs would go a long way in wowing house guests.

And who knew? There's even an entire stylish book on the subject!
