I am making quite a few matchbox gifts for friends this year and did not want to spend the time it takes to cut the individual pieces that one usually does to add to the cover top and sides and I wanted it to be pretty without any added accessories.
So to cover the top of the box I added two strips of layered DP (before assembly) - the first strip cut a bit narrower than the box cover and the top strip a bit narrower than the first. Then I scored the fold lines and assembled the box top. This took much less time and still was very festive. I use paper tape when assembling the box top and bottom and also used it on the paper strips because with the folds in the box top it needed to have a strong hold.
