more bento fun

It was exciting to receive these cute bento accessories (shown below) which I ordered from BentoUSA. There was never a dull moment visiting the website. Such a cute and happy store :-) I had fun browsing the merchandise and ordering was fast and easy.

I immediately started with new bento projects and tried using the fruit and vegetable cutters, rice and egg molds as well as the cute food picks.

I also enjoyed making these "kyaraben" or character bento (shown above and below) using the panda and cat rice molds. It was fun but the results were far from perfect :-) Positioning the nori cut-outs was a bit challenging. A dainty bento food tweezer was the right tool for the job.
