Bone Rattling Fun

It's Halloween weekend already and I'm still trying to finish up all my projects! Honestly, I thought I started early enough this year, but everything seemed to take longer than I had expected. This fun card for dd's fiance was the first project I finished. I think it's called a double slider box card and it was inspired by one I received from my dear friend Kris two years ago. (See Kris' card here ) Loved Kris' card and have been wanting to try this but never had the chance till now!
See the green ribbon loop on the right side of the card? Pull on it and...
*Surprise*! Out from the left side slides a box filled with treats!
How cool is that! You can find the template for the box shared by Sharon (Sweetiepeas) on the Splitcoast Stampers forum. I have to admit that when I first got a look at Sharon's template, I thought "NO WAY"! In fact I had to stare at it and study it several times before I got enough nerve to attempt it. Don't worry...once you get started on it, it really isn't as complicated as it looks! I went ahead and created a cutfile for it in Design Studio using the George cartridge so I wouldn't have to worry about all the measuring next time I decide to do another one...maybe for Christmas? 
Front of the card was fun to do! Tombstones, tree and sentiment are from the Happy Haunting cartridge, stickle glittered moon was cut from a circle punch, and bats and skeleton are from old Quickutz dies.

Oh Eunice, this is SO cute!!! I actually love that skeleton. I actually don't like skulls and skeletons, but this is one is cute and "bone rattling" fun! What a great way to dress up a Halloween candy box!

Is it possible to post the directions? I'm not a member of the Splitcoast Community to download them. Thanks.
