This is my first instructable so bare with me as I attempt to put this fun and easy tutorial on the screen for you.
I made sweet tea today and had tea bags, so I decided to age some paper before tossing them in the trash.
This is how you achieve that old paper appearance to your craft and art projects.
I've even heard of people using tea bags to dye fabric.I'll try that and get back to you on it okay!
All you need is
paper that you want to age. most any kind will work from drawing paper to card stock to stretched canvas
and something heavy like a couple books
First all you do is make some tea!
I brew tea on the stove top using a small pan about 6-8 tea bags and almost enough water to fill the pot.
after it nearly comes to a boil, I drain the tea water, and sugar my tea.
I sat the pot to the side with the used tea bags in it.
