Pack a Crafty Lunch: Bento Eye Candy

Animal Bento

Animal Bento

This bento box features a lot of cute accessories! I also love the heart-shaped onigiri. Onigiri is a traditional Japanese bento addition. It’s a sticky rice ball that’s sometimes filled with fish, egg, or veggies. To make onigiri, cook up some short grain rice and compress it in the palm of your hand until it forms a ball. You can also find molds for making different shapes, like the heart in the photo.
