I have played around making some of the aged labels you are seeing alot of recently. All you do is place a piece of plain white paper (copy paper) on a very clean cookie sheet. Mix instant coffee with water. I put mine in a spray bottle. Now you want this pretty dark. Try 1 cup of instant coffee to 2/3 cup of water. Test on a scrap piece of paper. If it is not dark enough add more coffee or too dark add more water. Now spray your paper until it is completely covered and soaked all the way through. Now don't touch it because it will tear very easily. Place into a 150 degree oven. Keep watching because it will dry really fast. Now take your aged paper to you printer. Go to your print program and make any label you can think of....examples for Christmas ones~
