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.
