Found this AMAZING idea at Christ is the Heart of Christmas
Take your composition notebooks to a home improvement store and have them run them through their big saws... LOOK how amazing these are! And they will fit perfectly in the shoeboxes.
These will decorate up easily if you wanted.. and you will bless kids with these notebooks. School supplies are ALWAYS a blessing to the children who receive the shoeboxes!
