Paper Slit Efffect

I realize the trend is toward flatter designs, but I wanted to apply an effect that gives the impression of a text box /  banner  appearing from a slit (cut) in the paper.   Sort of like the old coin slots (if anybody remembers those?) but I would use this as an alternative to bullet ponts. 

Just not sure how to master the shadow effects in PPT for this.   Any creative ideas appreciated.

Hi Neil,

If you can upload the PPT file or screen shot of what you're working on to give a better picture of what you're trying to do, you'll definitely get some ideas for the community. 

As far a shadow effects, anytime the built in options don't cover what I need I'll make a separate shadow object. Then you have more control of how and where it comes in. I just quickly used really basic shapes but this might give you some ideas.
