So what techniques are available for getting fresh blood out of paper and
leather? It might be useful to know this BEFORE I manage to cut myself

One thing that might work, depending on the paper or leather, is your own saliva --- especially if you don't want to use a chemical that could cause yet another problem.
I know that saliva worked on the collar of my shirt. I was headed to a meeting and looked in the mirror of my car to check on a nick from shaving and there was a blood stain. Since I had no time to go home and change, I sucked on my collar and the blood stain was gone ---- kinda gross, but it worked, especially when there was an immediate need (?emergency?).
