Folder Icons and their names

I'm playing around with the look of my desktop right now. I found some wallpaper that actually looks like a wall in a house and it has a couple of shelves on it. I put aliases of my most accessed folders on there, set the size I like, however, one thing is a little off.

I'd like the folder sitting on the shelf, and the name to run along the edge of the shelf, but I can't find a way of adjusting the space between the folder and the name, so either the folder sits on the shelf, then the name is kind of hanging in mid air under it, or the name is on the edge of the shelf but the folder is floating slightly above the shelf.

I know I can go to the View Options menu and adjust the grid size, icon size and text size, but I can't see a way to make the adjustment I need. Can I do this, and if so, how?
