my bentos

I thought I'd share an update on the bento making at our house. It's been so fun for me to create these little lunches. Usually I just stick with a color theme, or add some fun picks. But here are a few that I put a little more thought into. Giraffes, circles, and bears.

As I showed in my last bento post, I get most of the ideas from Another Lunch. And I found all the supplies through that website as well - Easy Lunchboxes, and bento picks/forks from J-box.
My favorite little tools have been the mini cutters though. You can find the romantic and noah's ark sets at JoAnn Fabrics, and use the 40% off coupon from the Sunday paper to buy these for only around $2 each! I use them to cut out fruit leather, cheese bites, and cucumbers. So fun!

Cute lunches. Found you through ELB's FB page. Have a wonderful Weds :)

MMW - those grass things are silicone separators, usually to keep the dry and wet things apart. Or to decorate the strawberry and carrot "forests" for the bears :)

I checked our local Joanne's for those cutters, but they don't have them. Apparently our store is too small. Bummer. Oh well, I'll keep watching for them.
