My first bento

I finally got around to getting a bento style box and some accessories and made my first bento box this morning.  If you don't know about bento boxes check out this blog to learn all about them.

I got the box at the Container Store (one of my favorite stores ever).  It's got two sections and a smaller lidded box that fits into the top section. I got the silicone containers at joanne's (they are cupcake liners). I had to cut them down a little to fit in the box.

In the bottom:  two hard boiled eggs, raspberries, and baked cheesits.
In the top:  cucumbers and ham and cheese roll ups.  The eggs and raspberries are for breakfast, the rest for lunch.

Here are close ups of the eggs, I found molds to make them into bear and bunny shapes, so cute!  The eggs didn't come out perfect, but still better than a plain egg.

It didn't really take that long to pack, but it does take planning.  Trying to figure out what to put where took the longest.


  1. My friend from Calif sent me a ginormous box of bento boxes and accessories for my bday last month. I love them!

  2. Gorgeous! I have those Silicone Cupcake liners, I thought I would never be able to use them again but this is a great new re-purposing idea.
