These boxes are 1 1/4" high and wide - just the right size to hold a small chocolate treat. First, I made the box following the terrific instructions and photos with measurements on the Stamp with Peg website HERE. Then I modified the measurements and made another box that was 2 3/8" high and wide. Here are my two versions:

The larger box holds two Hershey's Miniatures side-by-side.  Follow these measurements:

Along the 5 5/8" side, score at:

Along the 3 1/8" side, score at:
