I don't know what you mean by "flying paper column".

like this. the paper flies out of the box and moves around in a column. like a snake. does that make sense? i figure it's gotta be a fountain type of movement seeing as all the paper starts in the box.

The key here is in the image sequence you'll use for the paper. You can't just load a single image of paper -- it will have to be animated in some way to provide some complex motion.

Take a look at some of the "feather" emitters in particleIllusion (search using particleView) for an example of what I mean.

You could also take a look at the "confetti" emitters (again search with particleView).
