This is the wrong time of year for a molt, so bird needs to see an Avian vet in your area. The newspaper sounds like she is trying to make a nest, or she is eating it which also indicates an illness.

Please find an Avian vet in your area, describe her behaviors plus tell them what you are feeding bird, what kind of cage she is in and what kinds of perches and toys she has. In other words, give as complete a history as you possibly can including your home environment and state of your water supply.

Vet will run some tests to guage the health of your bird, and may prescribe meds for her.

Keep us posted on what your vet has to say about an abnormal molt.

if my lovebirds pick paper it's when they are bored and need new toys. The moulting is not related to the paper picking as far as I can see but maybe I'm wrong.
