If that's still too big of a hole, use one of those plastic "pancake" surface
mount boxes.  Then all you need is screw holes and a small hole for the wire.

But check clearance first!

The timer switch is fairly deep.

   For drywall?

  Draw the outline and use a utility knife to cut a deep grove along the
lines.  Then cut groves to opposite corners.  Whack with a hammer and
peel out the scrap.  VERY little dust created.

You can't fix stupid. You can't even put a band-aid on it, because it's
Teflon coated.

The paper backing would tear out the back side
of the drywall in the corners.  It wouldn't be
visible but it would be a weakness in the 'rock
where a crack could form.  Filleted corners
reduce the chances of cracking.
