Time to make yourself look important by making an old prophecy.
This is pretty easy and you dont need much material

Step 1: The Materials

You will need:

-coffee for the color (without cream or sugar)
don't use coke or pepsi it makes the paper sticky

-Printed prophecy or treasure map (or written if you have a good hand writing)

-A pan that you can fit the paper in

-A candle

-A lighter or a match

Step 2: Darken the Paper

Take the paper and soak it in coffee
tear arround the paper and tear a bit some words
(not to much)and make 2-3 holes in the paper

then wait about 30mins-an hour till it dries

Step 3: Burn the Edges

now burn the edges of the paper with the candle to give it an old effect
burn the holes to but d'ont get to close to the candle

WARNING:D'ont burn down the house

Step 4: Go Show Off Your Old Prophecy

    Ok, here's the story, I'm 11, I have a babysitter over right now for my sisters, I was in the kitchen, I tried to do this but in the toaster oven, bad idea, well at first it was going good, but then the edge of it caught on fire!!! So i tried to blow it out and it wouldn't work! So luckily I was by the sink so I RAN over to it and threw it in the sink and turned on the water, then I turned it off and it was still on fire, so I turned it on again, then it went out, so then I threw it in the trash, no one got hurt and nothing got damaged, the babysitter never even knew!

    Besides the breakfast beverages, you can also get a nice aged look by tossing the paper in the oven on a cookie sheet (so it doesn't get grill lines). Just don't overdo it or it gets too crispy to handle. ;)

    Tea can also be used, and will work better if you are using a paper that has a high cotton count.

    If you are going to write on it I suggest writing after coffee-staining, or the ink will wash out. If you want it to wash out, though, great (especially if it's permanent/India ink so just fades). My whole english class did these in school once, the entire classroom smelt of coffee :)
