You can use Mod Podge, double stick tape (Scotch), or you can use tacky tape. If you use Mod Podge on the top, you must use it on the bottom of the paper. If you don't need the box shiney, you don't have to Mod Podge the top. I use Mod Podge to put papers on composition books, just on the bottom. On the box I made, I used double stick tape on the bottom and Mod Podge on the top. My paper bubbled and I had to peel it off and start over.

Also, if you're using CS, you can use a thick tacky glue. I use Crafter's Glue. Lightly squirt it on the side you want to glue down and then spread it out into a thin layer either with your hand or a popsicle stick (the thicker ones that double as tongue depressors work best). Then stick! If you have bubbles that you can't get out, you're likely either using too much glue or your paper is too thin. If that happens, just put a thin coating of glue over the entire project and coat with glitter!
