Money Saving Monday

I plan on making this a new event on my blog. Every Monday, I hope to post a new money saving craft idea! I am really into Frugal Living and would love to get more into recycling.
Before I begin, I want to announce that my friend Sara, is giving away some awesome blog candy in celebration of her official title as Fiskars Certified Demonstrator. Please check out her blog following the link on my sidebar or HERE.
Okay, on to Money Saving Monday.... today's craft idea is these cute little gift boxes that I made for my sons' teachers. I bought a set of 12 white boxes in a package in the wedding section at Dollar Tree. They measure 3x3x1.5. I made my notecards to 2 7/8x 2 7/8. I did this by cutting my paper 2 7/8 x 5 3/4 and folding it in half. I then decorated my cards and the box to match. Here is the completed project and the cards inside (there are actually 8 cards but I only took a picture of 6 by accident):
