Treasure Map



My nephew seems to be getting to the age where he likes pirates. So I decided to make him a "treasure map". Forgive the crappy drawings; i can't draw to save my life. But he'll get the point. :)

First i created the map, with printer paper and a sharpie, then crumpled it up. Next i placed it in a shallow pan (used a cookie sheet actually). I used instant coffee bags, to sponge on the coffee onto the paper. I put it in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 mins. After removing it from the oven, i fliped it over and sponged more coffee onto it. I kept repeating until i got the color i desired. Then i burnt the edges for added effect.
