The boxes, by default, don't go into sidebars. The latter are often too narrow to allow multi-column boxes, each of which have unique padding and margins that would crash the sidebars and potentially ruin the page. You have two options: 1. Emulate the manner of a box by using a Text Widget within a sidebar and placing divs within that to handle any CSS, including alignment of an image, borders, colors, font sizes, etc. Once this is done to your specifications, you can copy it repeatedly into additional text widgets in the same sidebar to stack box over box. I do not think you'll be able to make boxes side by side unless it's a very wide sidebar. 2. You can try to use http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/boxer/ the Boxer Plugin which uses a shortcode. Again, you'll have the very same issue with side-by-side boxes. You'd apply the shortcode also to a text widget in the sidebar.
