SPOUTS, LIDS AND CANS: Fun with Familiar Metal Objects

Considering the number of existing craft books with the virtues of simplicity and economy, there is little to be said for Gilbreath's unexceptional toys, animals, gifts and Christmas decorations even if they can all be made out of salt box spouts, tin can lids, bottle caps, paper twister ties, magnets, glue and aluminum foil. If the illustrations do justice to the projects, the whimsical animals (bird, duck, snake, crab) have a generally tacky look and the utilitarian gifts (a bottle cap trivet, a magazine holder made from coffee cans and clothespins) are the sort of creations that recipients (usually the craftsmen's mothers) try hard to mislay.
