cover wallpaper edge

I painted over some wallpaper and it looks great, but I can still see the line where the wallpaper border was. Can anyone suggest something EASY such as a sticky back moulding I can simply stick along the line so it isnt noticeable.???

Painting over wallpaper is usually not recommended, unless it's a case where someone irresponsibly papered over unfinished drywall as a way to get around mudding and sanding the walls. Should one paint over wallpaper, it is recommended that spackle be used to fill the seams, lightly sand, prime and paint. The result will be invisible seams.

The option of covering wallpaper seams with molding or batten strips would look more cheesey than the visible seams in the wallpaper.
