Have you tried this? Just spritz the edge of your paper with some water (it needs to be good and saturated) then scrunch it up with your fingers until you get the look you are after. You will need to go back occasionally while its drying and scrunch some more since it relaxes a bit as it dries. For a really aged look, ink the edges of you paper before you spritz it with water. The ink will run into the paper that way. You can go back after it's dry and add some more ink to sharpen the color if you'd like to.
Don't you just love this piece of paper? It just screamed "Distress me" !! It's from the Close To My Heart Yuletide Carol collection. I will be ordering up more of this collection before it's gone....love it!
