Sadly my nearest  branch of Waitrose does not stock these stylish 2015 award winning tissue box beach huts at £2 a box, although they are available by Waitrose order  if you spend over £40 online, but that’s an awful lot of tissues!

Maybe not as stylish as Alan Tradgardmastre’s family made breakfast biscuit houses, but they are fun anyway:  http://tradgardland.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/breakfast-biscuits-little-wars-house.html

I was keen to take one of these Waitrose tissue beach huts apart and use it as a card template for making a few simple cardboard houses.

However, as I did not own the originals (they were in somewhere I stayed on a recent break), I was very restrained and haven’t hacked these apart without permission.
