and now of course it's clogged. How long should I wait for paper to break down (it's been 8 hrs) After 2 failed attempts, perhaps too much paper was stuffed in too tight? Is the next step slicing pipe back open and trying again? Thanks!

Sorry, try again.
You need to sweat the pipes back apart and remove the toilet paper.
What you should have used is rolled white bread (no crust), which will dissolve shortly after you finish soldering and put normal water pressure on.
Good Luck!
