    yes, like you said just a paper cut which is just a surface wound on the top layer of ur skin, probably a lot more uncomfortable than a standard one on the hands but would you ask this question if it was on your hand? most likely not so don’t panic about it. it will sting, just keep it nice and clean and it will go in a few days:) xx it’s impossible to slice the skin deep enough to do any damage with cardboard. 

  • Make sure that the wound is clean.  If it's bleeding, press it gently with a clean tissue.  The pain will ease in a few minutes.  Provided you're not losing a lot of blood (like pints of it), you'll be fine.
