Valentine's Day | two sweet snack boxes & a secret message

A couple lovey bentos for two of my little loves.

This one was for Paige. I loved how it turned out. I wasn't really sure what to think of it while it was coming together, but once it was done it reminded me of a box of chocolates. :)


Valentine box of chocolates mini lunch bento snack

It's packed in our teal Everset sandwich box.
- bite sized heart sandwiches that are stamped with "LOVE" (from this cookie cutter set)
- mini heart-shaped silicone cups holding turkey rolls-ups and a strawberry
- stacks of Wheat Thins with cream cheese, topped with frilly doilies.

The fancy little doily tops are jack cheese, cut with a fancy bento cutter set and topped with tiny fruit leather hearts.

Next up, a tiny little snack box for Ethan:

This one holds two turkey roll-ups, on a heart topped bento pick, a stack of cheddar cheese hearts, a mini-sized silicone heart cup with a strawberry, a few Wheat Thin crackers, and a little FruitaBu fruit leather roll-up.

This little box is a very small Lock & Lock box. It's roughly the size of a deck of cards. 
(I'm 96% sure it's from a multi-set of Lock & Lock boxes.) 

The fruit leather roll-up contains a secret message. A little love note, if you will....

I unrolled just the first few inches of the fruit leather, cut out this little note and then rolled it back up and tucked it in the tiny bento. :)  The "I {heart} U" cutter is from another handy bento cutter set

Hi! I came here from Elise's blog. Yum - now I want you to make me a lunch.

I love using my Laptop Lunchbox for my lunch. But I don't do anything to my food in it. The lunchbox makes it cute enough for me.

The Laptop Lunches box DOES make a lunch cuter. All those bright colors and tidy compartments!
