The problem is that you don't have any root element to trigger the
creation of the box.
If a title is always a box title, you could do this

(element par
  (if (equal? (attribute-string "type") "title")
    (make box box-type: 'both
              display?: #t
      (with-mode box
            (follow (current-node) '("par", box))))))
      (other processing))) 

This is untested, and it will not work if you have several boxes
in the same element. In this case, we would have to stop the list of
the following paragraphs. 
Tell us more on the structure.
