These Folding Candy Boxes Feature a lid and base that are sold separately, and therefore sized and measured separately. The lid is usually shorter than the base and give an upscale look to the boxes.
To measure these boxes, we measure length by width, by height. We will measure the lid first. For this example, we have a 7-1/8 x 4-1/2 x 1-1/8” Lid. The first size is the length, the second size is the width, and the last size is the height.
- For the Length: Position the longest side of the box in front of you, then measure from left to right.
- For the Width: Measure from front to back.
- For the Height: Measure from top to bottom of the box.
- To measure the base, just repeat the same steps above.
