Pack a Crafty Lunch: Bento Eye Candy

Panda Bento

Panda Bento

These onigiri pandas have seaweed accents, and I love how the slices of hot dog make their rosy cheeks! You see hot dog embellishments quite a bit in bento boxes. Check out how the ends of the hot dogs at the bottom are cut to resemble flowers. A veggie dog works just as well.

Are any of you into packing bento lunches? Let’s keep the lunch time inspiration going in the comments!
