Happened to be in Walmart and found "Junior Composition Books" 5x7" for 67¢ ! 80 micro-perforated sheets with college ruling available in a variety of colors.

It was a nerve-wracking operation, and I was sure I'd mess something up (and did not), but here it is! Let me know your thoughts. Okay, it's not an absolutely perfect cut, but that slightly rustic feel suits the MTN, IMO. I made a thick notebook with 120gsm paper, printed with fine lines. I a
