You could scale up (8x) one of the paper 'mid designs out there.  Just
be sure to make some allowance for the thickness of the material,
particularly when it comes to the fold-in flaps.  Kristin's right when
she says it's probably not worth the labor involved, though.  It's a
fair amount of labor just assembling them from prepunched, prescored
cardboard, let alone cutting and scoring them yourself.
