What you need

Tea bags
Sponge brush


Make a cup of tea with a tea bag and let the bag sit in the tea for five to ten minutes.

Let it cool down and remove the bag.

Gently squeeze the tea bag to get rid of any excess water. Then use the tea bag as a sponge to dab the stain onto your paper.

Alternatively make a cup of strong instant coffee and let it cool down. Paint your paper with the cooled coffee with a paint brush or sponge brush.

Depending on how strong your coffee is will depend on how deep of a stain you achieve.
