The box is a stencil of the recipient doing a ballet move, apparently in the hallway at school. Nick removed the lockers and made a stencil of her and spray painted it on to the box. A box that he cut down and rebuilt to fit the rose. He tied the black ribbon on and placed the rose inside. He explained to me how he went about cutting, soldering and bending the metal but there is no way on earth I could explain it to anyone else. I am as amazed by the little doohickeys under the rose as I am the petals. The stem is textured, too. It really looks to me like a rose that was magically touched and petrified while in its prime.
Ok...I know, I know. I'm his mom. hehe I'll shut up now.
