Exactly.

Tờ = a piece. So tờ giấy = a piece of paper.

Tờ báo = a piece of newspaper.

You can't say a piece of magazine, so at this point cuốn comes into play. In a small restaurant you would have a tờ menu (just a piece of paper), but in a five-star restaurant you would have a cuốn menu (a whole book).
