Using Illustrator I am trying to take one image which was made in Illustrator and paste it inside a smaller closed path on a new layer. I can not find any way to do this. I know that in Freehand you can cut the image then go to Paste Inside and it will place the cut image inside the other one, but I dont have Freehand available.

Any help would be appreciated.

Place all the items on the same layer. Make the object you want to "paste into" the top most object by using Object>Arrange>Bring To Front. Select all the items on the layer and use Object>Clipping Mask>Make.
