Thanksgiving Blessing Box

I saw a Thanksgiving Blessing Box over at this site, I thought I would give it a try.
Supplies from CTMH-Colonial White CS, Autumn Terracotta TCS, Chocolate Ribbon, Hemp, Olive ink, Vineyard Berry ink, Autumn Terracotta ink, watermark ink, clear embossing powder, Chocolate ink, November Word Puzzle stamp set, colored pencils, Bamboo marker, Autumn terracotta marker, Buttercup marker, Olive marker, Tulip Marker, silver charm, clear cello bag
Here is what the poem says-
Blessing Mix
The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty.
The Pretzels represent arms folded in Thanks & Prayer.
The Candy Corn reminds us that during the first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day
because the food was scarce.
The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is the celebration
of the harvest.
The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous
harvest of the next season if they are planted & well-tended.
