Q:

How can I make old paper?

A:

To make paper appear old, users can use loose tea or tea bags to achieve an antiquated look. The paper can then be used to make pirate treasure maps for a fun children's party game.

Cold tea is applied to the paper using a paint brush or a sponge. A cold wet tea bag rubbed over the paper also achieves the look of old paper. The paper can look even older if it is scrunched up, or by tearing small pieces of paper from the outside edge. Writing on the paper with a calligraphy pen also helps to create an old parchment look.
