Print your copy on a piece of standard printing paper using a laserjet printer. This will prevent the text from smearing.
Heat up a tea bag in hot water for a few minutes. Squeeze the tea bag to drain some of the liquid.
Rub the tea bag over the paper, covering the entire area. The paper will be thin and wet.
Gently fold the paper in different directions to allow the coloring to gather in the creases and create a more natural, worn look. You can either wait for the paper to air dry or use a blow dryer. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you are satisfied with the color.
Cut around the edges of the paper in a wavy and uneven line.
Hold your paper about an inch above your lighter's flame and lightly burn the edges. This will give you a nice brown coloring along the edges. You can also do this on other areas of the paper, just be sure to keep the copy visible.
Your paper should now look somewhat like this. You can create a burnt hole in the middle of your paper by holding the flame next to the paper for a longer period of time, until the center starts to burn through. Make sure you have a damp napkin to pat the area so the perimeter is controlled.
Gather your remaining supplies. You can also use a rubber band in place of an elastic string.
Roll up your note and wrap your elastic string around the center. Leave enough room to tie the ends and cut the remainder off. Cut the ribbon to about 2-3 inches long and cut an upside-down "V" into the bottom. You can carefully light the edges of the ribbon to keep it from fraying. Fold over the top of the ribbon about 1/4". Cut a tiny slit into the center. Slide the elastic string through the slit and tie. Cut off the ends of the knot so that it's as short as possible.
Roll your paper back up and fit the elastic around the center. Make sure the elastic knot is under the ribbon.
Flatten out your foil and put your candle above it, skinny side down. Light the candle a few inches above the tip so that the wax drips down below it in a nice circular shape.
Repeat step 11 until you've achieved a dark red color and a nice thick blob of wax. It should look similar to this.
Let your wax cool down a bit. You will notice a slight color change and it will look a bit more solid. Gently stamp your wax. You may have to attempt this step a few times before you get it right.
Remove your stamp from the foil once it's dry. Put a small drop of super glue on the back of your stamp and attach it to the ribbon, not the paper. Hold them together for a few seconds to ensure a good bond. That's it! You now have an old fashioned, handmade scroll. Check out more great World of WarCrafts on WoW Insider.
