Note-passing is a key part of Model UN. It allows you to communicate in private with your actual and potential allies, to find out voting intentions, to lobby other nations, to talk to the Chair, to submit amendments and even to swap gossip. As such, many delegates bring their own notepaper with them, which can make an impression by looking professional as well as conveying information about the delegation and the country they are representing.
Coloured notepaper is not a necessity. Each delegate will send and receive a different number of notes, depending on how active they are. Therefore anywhere between 10 and 30 sheets per person per day is 'appropriate'. You should bring only A5-sized notepaper as you will rarely need anything larger.
As for the design, if you have time, let your imagination run wild!
