Maybe some white tape, or glue some ribbon in the color of the decoration on top?

@jessyrez:  You can fold ribbon or paper or washi tape around the edges.

I’d pick up a paper trimmer and do them over.

I can’t see how you would insert the lid of the box in a paper trimmer.???

I would glue the edges inside and out and apply some purple ribbon to cover the edges, to give you an artificial straight line from the outside.

I thought we were looking at the black strip (I assumed paper) at the bottom of the box.

If I’m mistaken, just disregard what I’ve said.

@Hyperventilate:  I think you are looking at the hole cut into the lid.

@jessyrez:  You could cover the whole box in pretty, glossy wrapping paper and recut the hole in the wrapping paper.

Glue a piece of ribbon so it just hang over the edge cut (jagged part) of the slit. Make the ribbon long enough to fit the width of the top and sides, with about an extra inch or so.  That way you can hide the cut ribbon ends under the lid.

 

Once you do that across the top and bottom  (long part of the slit), the small sides will not really show jagged.

Trim, ribbon or decorative paper will all serve to hide the edge.  Personally, I’d get an x-acto knife and clean it up a bit first.  You don’t want to use a box cutter, it won’t give you that nice, clean edge you’re looking for.

@MariContrary:  +1!  Xacto knife using a metal ruler as a straight edge.
