from Oatmeal container to Thanksgiving Holder

Okay, So I had this Oatmeal container that I've been hanging on to, thinking I would make something out of it. Well, since I need to make some cookies for a dessert auction at my church, I thought it would be good for a Thanksgiving container. After they eat the cookies,  they could use the container to store daily notes of what they are thankful for and then ( better for next year ) they could read each note and they would have a year of daily blessings to look back on.
So I started with a basic oatmeal container:
added some scrapbook paper with mod podge:
added borders cut with a punch:
printed " Give thanks to the Lord for He is good, His Love endures forever!" on my computer:
I stamped around the edges and added a border print:
Added a bunch of fall leaves, pumpkins, flowers, ribbon and gems:
I think it turned out quite nice, what do you think?
