Exclamation Box Help Needed Badly

I need to find some kind of template or instructions to make boxes out of 12x12 designer paper for some gifts for my office that I needed like yesterday...
I was making 2,5,7,10 boxes but they are too small.
Is there a box like that, that I can make bigger with 12x12 paper??
Or is someone smart enough to scale the directions up for me to use bigger paper?

PS
I am VERY scoring and cutting challenged so be warned

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

how big around are the lotions? Basically how big do you need the base of the box to be?

an inch taller and wider than the original would be perfect.
I've tried just adding an inch to all the measurements and it isnt working
Maybe I am doing something wrong (obviously), lol...

well, there's not enough paper to go that big hmmm.

The taller isn't a problem, but the wider is. can it be 1/2 " wider? and be big enough?

Yep

I think that I had an "aha" moment.....
If I dont make the scalloped flap and just close it another way then I have lots more height, right?

sure, or you could make the flap smaller too.

you could do

2, 5.5, 7.5, 11 then use the last 1" for the tab to hold it closed than have a 2" flap on top
