How do i make a Hat or Bonnet Box?


so far all i have been able to find info on is how to take an existing hat box and decorate it! :(
What i NEED is to make a box from scratch - none of the modern boxes work for my bonnets(like the ones from Marshalls). They are to shallow or not wide enough.

Bonnets are too expensive, or to hard to make, to have them damaged because the stupid boxes arent the right size, so i REALLY want to make a couple but dont have a clue how to go about it.

PLEASE if you know how - i would really appreciate ANY help thanks
