In brief: Unlikely

It is important to remember that viruses like hepc, HIV and others are strings of proteins that are connected by very weak bonds.
They require many things to stay active and need living cells to reproduce and survive. Unless there was gross blood, mucous or some other organic substance on that paper and it got into your wound, the odds are very unlikely.
