How do I create clearance for an existing part I'm creating a holder/mount for? Boolean offset fail

I'm trying to learn how to make parts that can go around an imported/existing part by modeling an AirTag holder.  I can not seem to figure out what phrase to search anywhere for that results in a tutorial or advice on modeling around existing objects...

I have imported a good model of an AirTag and trying to use the Boolean tool to subtract it from my extrusion.  I can do the subtract operation but if I try to use the Offset option, I can't get it to solve...

Is there a different tool/method I should be using to do this? Any other tips on creating "pockets"/holders for an existing part?
