You can make absolutely amazing things out of paper mache. Stolloween.com
is a great example of this. I think that if more people knew how easy and simply amazing paper mache is, many more people would do it.
You can use Paper Mache to make masks, statues, jack-o-lanterns, boxes, trays, canoes, pinatas, carnival floats, puppets, etc.
In Egypt, paper mache was used to make coffins, and in war time, paper mache was used to make human decoys. In the 1800's it was used for book bindings. In Japan and India it was used for decorative purposes on shields.
I have seen numerous paper mache projects on Craftster, but it is scattered about in different categories because of what it is used for: Everything.
So... I'd like to see a board!
