Default Covering a box with decorative paper

I have some plain square and rectangle boxes that I would like to cover with paper that I've handstamped but I cannot figure out a good way to do this! Does anyone have directions on how to cover the box with paper so that it looks professional/clean?! I am having a lot of trouble finding good tutorials on this!

Thanks!!

I often find that using punched borders along the corners helps give a clean look.
There's an example here of what I mean: DTGD10 Floral Box by Cook22 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers.

I've tried the technique from that link "covering the box with patterned scrapbook paper" and it comes out messy

I do like the punched border look, but I wish there was a cleaner way to do it without having to hide the corners!

Be sure you find Scrap n Dab glue by Dab n Stick. It will not bubble or shrink. The school glue at Mardel is by the same company
