Elaine's first alphabet - finished

It was exciting to see the whole alphabet come together as I hadn’t originally made the letters in alphabetical order. I knew how I wanted to present the alphabet, but it took me a while to work out how to make the four concertina ‘arms’ fold neatly over each other. The lid of the box holds it closed since I cut the sides of the box to allow it to open out. The concertina letters are attached to the inside base. I chose to use this box as it was made by underprivileged women in Bangladesh.
