I would like to know if this is a correct way of saying
"I enjoy cutting paper"
紙を切っているを楽しみます。

紙を切るのが好き。

You need to make the verb into a noun phrase by adding の or こと
also 楽しむ is not a good replacement for to like. It's more of a "enjoying or appreciating" rather than a liking, I think.

Ahh...! Thankyou again. Yes, that would make a whole lot more sense. I completely forgot about the noun phrase creation.
