    I have never tried newspaper for stuffing, I always use cotton. Interested in seeing how it turns out.

    When I crossed the border, I used to use.......well.....newspaper should look fine. If you spray the inside with Great Stuff, it will give it rigidity. :)

    It's looking really cool, man, keep up the good work.
    I've heard of some people that spray the paper even before cutting out the pieces. As I've never tried that, I don't feel comfortable enough to recommend it to you.
