    You should have a private key written there in your paper wallet.
    Open Dash-Qt and go to "Tools" -> "Debug console", write "importprivkey yourprivatekeyhere" (replace yourprivatekeyhere with the actual private key), hit enter.
    Wallet will take some time to rescan blockchain and once it's done you should see paper wallet balance added to your Dash-Qt wallet balance.
    Now you should be able to spend it as usual.

    Quick Pointer: Be SURE to spend the ENTIRE balance of your paper wallet to a new address. Because of the way change addresses work, you may loose coins if you only send them out piecemeal.

    Unlock wallet before importprivkey.
    Code:

    Paper wallet suggestions:

    Use paper.dash.org offline by download the zip.
    You can always make new wallets and decrypt offline.

    Print the Wallet Details of BIP38.
    Front and back on a single page using Page Selection in Print Preview.
    When printing, increase the number of copies.

    Bulk Wallets can be individually printed with qr.
    Look up each private key in Wallet Details (offline)
    Copy and paste the pub/priv keys somewhere secure.

    Print on colored paper to easily differentiate.
    Laminate or put inside plastic sheet protectors.
    Cut out and fold it into a baseball card protector.

    Fireproof/waterproof document chest buried.
    Personal home safe. Bank safe-deposit box, or all three.
