The lid measures 5-3/8” (14.3 cm) from point to point and 4-21/32” (11.8 cm) from edge to edge.

What weight of cardstock did you use? The boxes are great! :)

I use 110 lbs cardstock from Michaels, I find that the overlay helps with stiffening and sides and adding strength

So beautiful. I may have to make a few. These would look great as a set of nested boxes.
