Step 3: Tearing the Paper

Carefully tear the edges of the paper to give an old look.
Step 4: Preparing the Water
(For this step you will need a large container that your paper will fit in.)
Take the large container and fill it up with warm water* this will be for the tea.
*It is very important that you use warm water for the tea to brew.
*Please have adult supervision because the water can burn you.
Step 5: Tea Time
Take the tea out of its package and soak it in the water for 5-10 minutes.
Step 6: Place the Paper in the Tea
Remove the tea bags and let the paper soak in the water for 30+ minutes. The longer you leave it in there the darker it will be.
Step 7: Dry the Paper
Once it reaches your desired color, remove it from the water and use a blow dryer to dry the paper.
Step 8: Drawing the Map
Once it is completely dry, you can draw whatever type of pirate map you want!!!
