I use sand paper just from the hardware store, and sand like crazy, especially around the edges of the paper. If you really want it worn, crumple the paper up and it will sand off more prominent lines.

I also use ink that you stamp with on the edges. I find the little ones that look like cat's eyes are the easiest to use to get in the corners of letters....and store them upside down to keep them freshly inked.

You can also use a wire brush, chaulk (which I do use a lot also). Pretty much anything you'd find maybe in your SO hardware stash you can try out. Sorry forgot to add. You can also use a bit of water with a little bleach and spray it on the paper. Just leave the paper in the sun. Also if you want that really old paper that looks like it caught a bit on fire, I have read (although I have never tried it) that you tear the page, take a little lemon juice and run along the edges of the torn side, and then use a heating tool (like the ones you use to emboss cards). It then goes to a brunt kind of look.

I am not sure if an iron would work, but I guess it is worth a try.
