On the top of the cover I was just filling in with basic half cross stitch pattern but for the sides I did 3 rows of basic stitch and then started at the center of the block and filled in with long stitch.
First from center to corners and then worked inward until the "fan" was complete, then from the longest stitch to the corner downward to the center.
I turned the box upside down and did the same thing.
When I was finished, I made a cross in the middle. I learned a lot while experimenting with the pattern and cannot wait to create one for a long tissue box. FUN!
I did not count canvas squares to fill in the sides, just found the middle and worked from there.
