Covering a box with card / thick paper

What would you use to re-cover a box with fancy schmancy paper? I've run out if glue but wondering if my dear friend double sided sticky tape would be ok....

double sided sticky would probably work as long as you are careful to put proper creases into the paper at the box edges, so it would be far less likely to pop off iyswim? also using a pretty ribbon around the top edge, with double sided tape in reverse, would be an extra help, especially if the box was to be left open? if not, the lid would help hold it in place.

I'm not sure it would last that long. I'd be breaking out the modge podge if you have any or pva glue although that can be messy
