Sharing a Tutorial Easy Coffee Dyed Papers. I love the look of coffee dyed papers, but I hate spending all day drying.
The easiest way for me to coffee dye papers is to do a few sheets as needed. I’ll mix up the coffee: about two heaping table spoons in hot water, mix inside a coffee cup.
Lay paper on a shallow baking pan. Dip paint brush into the coffee and paint the paper. Flip over to paint the other side.
Next is to dry the paper. I have left it in the pan until it dried – sometimes over night. Or you can use a heat tool to dry the paper. I have also used a hot iron to dry the paper. Lay out an old towel to protect your surface. Place damp coffee dyed paper on towel. Put another old towel or pressing cloth on the damp paper and press with hot iron. If you don’t use the pressing cloth make sure to clean your iron when you are done so you don’t stain other items later on.
Optional patterned coffee dyed papers can be made using stencils. Paint paper as before, but this time lay a stencil in a pan then the paper, another stencil and more paper until you have run out of papers and or stencils. Allow these to dry. I left my papers to dry over night.
The above are the results using the Baroque flower stencil and the below photo is the rose stencil that comes in the Enchanted Rose Subscription box after it has been coffee dyed.
Below photo shows the result using the crossed stitched buttons stencil after being coffee dyed.

Using the connected flowers stencil really made the coffee dying stand out on this page.
