CU OK Stained Cardboard Pieces

I wanted to try out one of the methods of “aging” paper I found in this WikiHow. I brewed a cup of really strong coffee, tore up some cardboard and stained the cardboard with the coffee, then put the pieces in the oven.  My girls thought I was nuts! But they turned out pretty interesting. There were 15 pieces but the download was really big (the pieces are very large compared to what they look like on the preview.) Most are at least 9” and most are almost 12”. So I will zip up the second half of the stained cardboard for tomorrow! These would be interesting to “stitch” or “staple” on a layout I think.
