The <p> elements (an any elements that have a margin) apply their margin to the furthest ancestor node that doesn't have padding or border, or that don't use the overflow property.You can solve it in two ways:

  1. Apply margin: 0; to all <p> elements.
  2. Apply overflow: auto; or overflow: hidden; to the immediate parent of the <p> element.

I personally prefer the second solution.
