I'm making a round cake, covering with fondant and I'm going to quilt the sides. I want it to look like a gift box with a lid but I don't want another layer of fondant/gumpaste on top. I was thinking of putting a 1" border around the top edge - but how would I create the edge?

Roll a piece of fondant "rope" and place it along the edge like "piping". That along with the 1" border will make it appear to be the box's cover.

I just saw a tutorial on this and I'm sorry but I can't find it but what they did was to wrap the cake sides with fondant and than place another piece on top to cover it and than place a piece approx 1 to 1/2 in or what ever is desired on side where side and top meet. But I did a convers box and did pretty much the same method in my pictures, Sorry if this confused you
