A while ago, I filmed a video about creating a book of Herbology. My plan was to coffee stain papers to use in the book. This is how I did it!
Select the size of paper you want to use. I used large sized index cards. Soak your papers in strong brewed coffee. The longer you leave the paper in the brew, the darker the color will be. This technique gives your paper an aged and awesome look. Carefully remove your papers from the coffee and place on an oven rack. Set your oven and let the papers "bake". Keep an eye on them as you do not want to start a fire. The papers should take about 10+ minutes in the oven. When they are done, you can begin to write on them and use the paper for anything you wish. I can not wait to use these in my book.
If you have any questions, send me a message or leave a comment for me. You can view my Herbology video here:
I hope you enjoyed this DIY and I would love to hear about your finished projects if you choose to give this a try.
Much Love and Bright Blessings,
