Lay clean ruler on chocolate. Use sharp knife to cut straight edges to match the 8 following dimensions: one 4x4 inch (10 x 10 cm) base, four 3⅞ x 2 inch (9.7 x 5 cm) sides.
Lift base onto clean piece of waxed paper or parchment paper. "Glue" sides, 1 at a time, using remelted chocolate and paintbrush. Chill. A lid can be made using same method as above. Drizzle melted white chocolate over lid and sides for added decoration.
Using remelted tempered chocolate, fill desired molds. When filled, gently tap mold on counter to smooth out chocolate and release any air bubbles. Place mold in refrigerator or freezer for two or three minutes, then flip out onto waxed paper. Have two molds of your favorite shapes to speed up the process.
