What is the energy source of crumpling paper?

The crumple is caused by the release of elastic potential energy stored in the pre-stretched substrate into the epitaxial graphene layer.

Why does paper get soft when you crumple it?

Paper is made up of a bunch of stiff fibers. When you fold the paper you are breaking up the fibers along that line, which makes the paper softer there.

Does folding paper make it heavier?

As weight is product of mass and acceleration due to gravity. And gravity is inversely proportional to the square of distance from the center of earth. So the force on the folded layers would be less. So unfolded paper would be more heavy then folded one.
