Altered Inchie Treasure box "tutorial"

First, thank you all for your kind words--this is
truly one of my favorite projects ever!

Second, it was so easy to make (aside from collecting
all the inchies), that I don't know if this can
honestly count as a tutorial:

The box used had an existing lip around the top, so
I first positioned the inchies, then adhered each row
using Super Tacky Glue. After the glue dried, I went
around the edges of each inchie with Crystal Effects
(pretty much the same as Diamond Glaze), adding micro
beads in areas.

Most of the inchies were already embossed, so I haven't
sealed the entire top with anything yet, but it would
probably be a good idea to do so.

If you make an Inchie Treasure Box, please leave me
a link--I'd love to see it!
