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.

Congratulations!
