I've heard of baking it in a pan with tea or coffee!. If you want to burn the edges, rub a wax border on the paper where you want the burning to stop and then set the edges on fire!. You could also burn holes into the paper using the wax technique (wax circle, burn it in the middle) or touching a smoldering match tip to the paper!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You have to go outside to do it!.Take a piece of paper put it on the ground take a magnet fine glass and point it to the sun and on the paper you should see the light and then the paper will burn!.I did it alot of time and it made my paper look old!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

you can always burn the edges of the paper a little, with a lighter!.

as long as you dont go too far with the burning (hah, be careful with it)

it looks cool i the end :)Www@QuestionHome@Com
