I wanted to make it cheaply and relatively quickly, so cardboard was always the way I wanted to go. While visiting my mom few weeks back I found my old game box for one of the Rock band games, and it was this really high quality white cardboard.
Contrasted by the light brown color of cheap cardboard box I thought it came out alright.

but it turned out to be pretty well in the ballpark of what I needed.
