Printed Paper Look?

I had this idea of making some modelling paste origami and I want it to have a printed piece of paper look (as if it was a typed page folded over). Is there anyway of achieving this maintaining the edible nature of the model? I know there are transfer sheets for chocolate with different designs but do not recall seeing any resembling a printed page (or newspaper). I know that in Art School we used magazines and other printed material with PVA glue on fabric to transfer images but obviously this is not something you can do with edible fondant. Has anyone ever tried any method to make fondant look like printed paper? Or is there something you can think of that might be of help? I would be grateful for your assistance!

You could try rice paper, it's more durable than wafer paper.

You can attach printed wafer paper to fondant or gumpaste using piping gel or corn syrup.

Thank you. Seems I'll have to ask my cake supply shop to print out a couple of pages for me.
