Favor Boxes – trouble with sizes!?

by DIY wedding planner on July 8, 2012

For my wedding favors, we are DIY gel candles in mini square clear votives. I’d like to place the candle into a clear or frosted box and then place that box into a black favor box with lid – OR use a black favor wrap so that the candle can be seen through the clear box on the sides.

Here’s where I’m running into trouble. My square votive measures 2 x 2 x 2.5″ and most of the favor boxes that I’m finding are 2″. I have been able to find a few that are 3″….but I’m afraid that the 1″ gap won’t look good and might damage the candle if it moves around too much.

So I am searching for a clear 2 1/4 x 2 1/4 x 2 3/4″ box to place inside of a 2.5 x 2.5 x 3″ black favor wrap OR box with lid.

Any help on this? Thanks!

It’s only a 1/2″ gap to each side. Stuff it with shimmery shred at
the bottom half of the box. You’ll do fine.
