This free pattern is for a red crochet gift tissue box cover with ribbon and bow. This pattern is made using single crochet stitches as well as bulky Brava yarn from WeCrochet.
It’s finally Gift Giving Season. But it’s also flu season. So why not combine the two and make a gift tissue box cover. It looks pretty and one will have a hard time seeing where the tissues are.
Tissue boxes are usually an eyesore and don’t look pretty and making it look like a gift will make it blend right in with the Christmas decor around the house.
I purposefully used a red gift – as a Christmas color – and white for the ribbon and bow to combine the Christmas color with the tissue colors. That will allow you to hide the tissues coming out from the top.
I guess it’s a Gift with a surprise hidden inside.
Ready for another surprise: it’s made using only single crochet stitches. So it’s easy and an ideal beginner crochet project.

Crocheting Tissue Box Cover Patterns
I’ve made so many tissue box cover, I should turn them into an ebook. They are so fun and easy to crochet. Most of the time I feel like a crocheter AND DIY crafter when making them.
Most of the tissue boxes I designed are made with just single crochet stitches and therefore super easy to make.
There are many different ways to start a tissue box cover, all depending on where the tissues are being pulled out. But this gift tissue box cover was made from the top down starting with the side where the tissues are being pulled out.
The actual tissue box is inserted from the bottom into the cover. And tissues are being pulled out from the top, from the center of the gift bow.

Free Written Pattern for the Gift Tissue Box Cover
This Gift Tissue Box Cover pattern was inspired by my Snowman Tissue Box Cover Pattern, which includes a video tutorial here to explain how to crochet the tissue box cover itself. Please watch that video if you need assistance.
Crochet the Tissue Box Cover
Ch 20 with red, connect the first with the last ch to make a large loop.
You will now work in continuous rounds, so be sure to use a stitch marker.
R1: *1 sc in the next 4 chs, then 3 sc in the next ch, repeat from * until the end of the round
R2-6: *1 sc in each st until you reach the corner, 3 sc in to the corner st, repeat from * until the end of the round
You should now have 68 sts in total.
Now crochet 1 sc in each st for 18 rounds or until you reach the bottom of the tissue box (when inserted into the cover).
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Crochet the Gift Bow and Ribbon
With white chain 7
R1: starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc in each st, turn
R2-78: 1 sc in each st, turn
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Assembly and Wrapping the Tissue Box Cover to make a Gift
Either sew (using white yarn) or, like me, use hot glue first add the ribbon part to the sides of the tissue box cover. Like the first image below.
Next, take one ribbon at the time and fold it three times such that you have 2 even loops and one fold touches the end of the ribbon (like 2nd image below). Add hot glue (or sew) to the fold and the end of the ribbon and then attach it between the edge and the opening of the top of the tissue box cover.
Do this with all the ribbon pieces to make a bow of 8 loops and have an opening in the center to pull the tissues out.
