Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly. I found a cached link on Google here . It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well. Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project.
The guest room that doubles as the play room is a decorating conundrum (don'tcha love that word?). On a typical day (as in: no guests are coming) if you can manage to walk through without the pain of stepping on a Lego, then you WIN. I wanted to update the window treatments for the room, but let's face it - it's the home to toys for three boys - no designer fabrics required. So here's what I did: I started with a 12" x 15" canvas drop cloth. The package said that the actual measurements were 11" 9" x 14" 9" (hmmmm?)
Amongst other things, I mentioned how wonderful they are for creating custom embellishments without the need for any fancy pants equipment. Yep, waterslide decal paper is a truly fab product, though as great as it is, there is one drawback – although it’s somewhat tough it’s not especially durable. So, whilst it’s perfect for ornamental purposes, it’s not ideal for more practical applications….until now that is! Magic decal coating paper is a product designed to be used in conjunction with standard decal paper to make the finished transfers durable – yes, even dishwasher resistant! If you’re already familiar with magic decal coating paper then please excuse my tardy excitement, though for everyone else who is just getting to the party now too, feel free to start throwing the streamers! My recently aquired assortment of SLOM jars from IKEA were awaiting some DIY craftiness and seemed the perfect victims candidates for my first magic decal experiment.
Determine the measurements of the window-seat area, and select cabinets of an appropriate size from a kitchen-supply store or home-improvement center. You'll also need to buy molding that matches the cabinets. Remove shoe molding from around the wall in the sitting area. Build a wooden frame pedestal from 2" by 4" lumber (Image 1). (For added height, use 2" by 6" lumber for the frame.)
