Hint: My project is #9
My MahJongg group had just left when I received a mystery box in the mail from DecoArt. I quickly opened it, revealing its contents: a paper mache box in the shape of a house, luscious fluid acrylics in four vibrant hues, DecouPage and Liquid Glass. It was the perfect starting point for my project, “Game Night with Old Friends.”
Game Night was, and still is, popular among friends and families. Vintage games are resurfacing including MahJongg, Scrabble and Rummy-Q. So I used iconic game pieces to turn my paper mache house into a FUN-KY candy holder, perfect for our next Girls Night Out.

Staz-On Black Ink Pad

The How To
Paint sides and roof of paper mache house with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics. I painted each side a different color.
Stamp images on paint chips using Staz-On ink. Cut paint chips to fit box sides and adhere stamped images to house using DecouPage by brushing medium on back of paint chip and paper mache house.
Add embellishments using DecouPage (it's also a glue!), adhesive tape or glue dots.
Paint Scrabble trays with Media Fluid Acrylic. Spell out “Old Friends” using scrabble tiles,
and place on trays.
This MahJongg rule book from 1958 was a great flea market find.
Place finished house onto BINGO card and display on game board. Fill box with old-time
candy and share at your next Game Night.
