I actually used paper for my mini's and 1 set of books. I did buy the keep calm paper- 4 sheets for the books and 8 extra sheets because I might need it for something. I may make books for some teacher co workers for Christmas. We did bring home Keep calm banners form England last year for our class rooms so they would love the note books.
