Little Ms. Bubbles doesn’t have summer camp or school for the next few weeks, so I’ll be posting some old bento that haven’t made it to this blog yet. The above bento was made for Little Ms. Bubbles and her Cousin T. I usually don’t include a cupcake or super sweets in my lunches, but Cousin T was visiting and I wanted to give them a special bento for their picnic.
The pair of bentos above illustrates a perfect example of why everyone needs a nori punch. If there is only one bento making item that you need to get, please make it a nori punch. I promise, a nori punch will make any lunch look cute instantly. Yes, the picks add cuteness too, but the nori face gives the bento a personality.
I purchased my nori punches online. I did a quick search for “nori punches” or “nori cutters” and stumbled across a few sites. In a future post I show you which punches I have.
BTW, this bento uses a fake lettuce foil instead of real lettuce. I found it at Daiso and thought it was kind of unusual. I generally don’t use it, but if I don’t have any real lettuce on hand, it’s a nice stand-in.
