Transform boring sheets of paper into simple and fun craft projects.
You Will Need
- Sheet of paper
- Pen or printer
- Baking sheet
- Coffee or tea
- Bonded or textured paper (optional)
Write on the paper
Write or print text or images on a clean sheet of paper that you intend to antique. Printer paper works well.
Crumple the paper into a ball, and then open it and smooth it out on a baking sheet.
Brew tea or coffee
Brew a cup of coffee or tea and paint it onto the paper with the paintbrush. You can also pour the liquid over the paper as long as you are quick to soak up the excess.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
Bake the paper for 3 to 5 minutes. Keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t catch fire.
Remove your paper from the oven and put this now-ancient map or manuscript to good use.
