I was going to suggest the tea/coffee too. How about also crumpling it up a little and/or burning the edges slightly?

old looking paper?

Can someone tell me how to make paper that looks old? I apologize because I know that this has been talked about on here before, but I tried searching and couldn't find anything! I guess I just can't think of the right search terms right now!
Anyway, if you know how to make this paper, please let me know. Also, do you write on it before or after it undergoes whatever treatment this is? Or does it matter? Thanks!

Dip the sheet of paper in tea or coffee. Strength of tea and length of time in the "bath" will determine intensity of color. Let dry thoroughly before writing on it.

I used a brown paper bag, crinkled it up, and then flattened it out again and burned the edges like someone else suggested.

"Old" paper

I have also used the paper bag idea with one addition. I had the students use a "wash" of tan or brown tempura paint. I diluted it with water until it was very thin. The students then brushed it onto their paper with large paint brushes - you could also use sponges and they could wipe in over the project.

How to make old looking paper

this is what you do. First make tea okay just listen. take the tea bag out of the water when ready. Get the paper in a pan so it doesn't get messy. Take the tea bag from the tea and drag it across the paper on both sides (do more in certain areas for added affect). Let dry and burn the edges or crumple a little if wanted. Lipton tea works best.

-Enjoy
