Why not buy a roll of lining wallpaper and make it look like a scroll yourself? You can use tea as spudqueen suggests, or you could use a candle - I did this at school over 20 years ago, so it probably wouldn't be classed as safe these days! Hold the lighted candle a few cm below the paper, near the edge, and move the candle slowly nearer to the paper until it starts to brown slightly. Make sure you don't let it catch fire! If parts of the paper get too cooked, just crumble them off using your fingers once the paper has cooled down. This all adds to the aging effect.
Or if you want to buy one... you could try one of these sites:
Camden Lock at the weekends is a nice outing. A bloke called Ron has one of those glass lock-up shoplet type/stalls in The Stables Market, going up the slope next to the Horse Hospital. He sells Chinese scrolls for �12.50 each, paper with the wood at each end. The paper is thick,a sort of cream colour. You would have to paste the lines to read over the Chinese symbols though, as some are painted on.
Lots of home/gift places sell all sorts of baskets. You could get a big 'dish' one crudely woven perhaps,which would give you the twig effect base, over which you could put your own bits of fake moss etc. The basket would make it more substantial.
