    What purpose does the towel serve? Can you put the antiqued paper through a printer after submerging it in coffee or tea? Thanks for a great idea.

    The towel allows for Proper drainage/drying without warping. No, it must be printed Before submerging it, or it will jam in your printer.

    I have used turmeric boiled in water too. It makes a beautiful "Old World-looking" yellow! And dragon's blood resin gives a wonderful red (soak resin in alcohol first)....so does beet juice...... bark soaked in vinegar yields a beautiful blue...

    I did this with paper tags one year for Christmas gift tags but I just crumpled them and dropped them in the tea. After I removed them from the tea, I straightened them out on a cookie sheet and stuck them in the warm oven for a few minutes to dry them. They made the gifts looks great and everyone loved the tags!!

    Sorry I think I missed something. Do you print your labels firs or after soaking and drying? This is such a wonderful idea, I am going to see how it will work on some heavier white paper I have, so that I can make it antique looking and then paint my Christmas Cards on it.
    Thank You so much for posting this idea, I think of so many used for it such as cards, and bookmarks.

    What a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing it. I love giving my home canned items to friends and this will make them even prettier.
