Well organized, yet (I think) a minor error.
Assume the boxes are stacked horizontally. The horizontal measure would be 5.5" (they extend to the margins). The vertical would be (8 - 0.5) / 3 or 2.5".
Assume the boxes are upright. The vertical measure would be 8" (they extend to the margins). The horizontal would be (5.5 - 0.5) / 3 or 1 2/3 inches.
