Shouldn't be more than $5, get yourself a nail punch. It will let you hit the nail just a little bit past the outside surface of the wood.
Mix together the sawdust from cutting the wood with a bit of wood glue to cover the nails. It's a cheap and effective way to hide the nail heads without wasting money on wood putty.
My only suggestion is to get a cheap drill (either at a yard sale or store), say $20 or so. Get a real thin bit for it and drill a pilot hole for the nails. The problem you get with fastening thin boards is that they split real easy.
