Paper Joint

>Suppose you have a glue up with numerous paper joints in it (so you can split it apart easily later in numerous places.) Now suppose you have changed your mind because you no longer want to split it apart, you want to turn it thin, and you are afraid that it may fly apart -- but you like what you have so far and don't want to throw it away. How would you treat the piece to "un-do" the weakening that's there because of the paper joints? I have thought of soaking in some kind of hardener or whatever, but I have no idea how thin card stock( the paper) will respond.Any ideas?
