Hello......Love Valentines Bento

Valentine's Day is almost here. I'll be sharing my last Valentines bento tomorrow. This post is part of a blog hop with my fellow Bento Bloggers & Friends. So after you have seen my post, please click on the image at the end to go onto the next blog to check out more Valentines lunches. :)

I first saw this cute boy calling girl stick figures on a set of pillow cases. Subsequently saw them on cupcakes as well. I thought they were perfect for a Valentines themed lunch, so I tried to recreate the design on onigiri.

The side dishes packed in the bentos were pork cutlets, fried prawns, broccoli and peaches.

Ingredients used to make the stick figures were nori, heart sprinkler and a strand of ume soba noodle. :)

Now, please click the image above and hop over to Licious Lunches to check out Rebecca's awesome Valentine's day creations. :)

  11. Hi Ming
    How do you cut the figures? .. i meant do you cut and paste on something before placing it onto ur bento?

    1. I sketch out on paper first, and just place a nori behind and cut out the outlines in parts using a pair of scissors. Another way is to use a cutting knife to cut. I just paste it directly onto the rice, I did spread on some mayonnaise so that it will stick better.
