Just a note - check out the type of plastic the health/beauty containers are made of, to make sure they're food-safe. Here's a link about food-grade and other grades of plastic:

happy bentoing!

Wow, the package you got is really cute  Grin. I'm excited to see more photos. (Are those spoon-picks? What the heck are the lobsters? Is that PacMan on that bento belt?)

The bento you made looks delicious and pretty. Your sister is lucky Smiley. Is it a tree with hearts?

Moonoverbrooklyn received her package from me a little while ago, but she couldn't take pictures, so I'm posting a couple I took before I sent.

I made her an insulated zip-up bag, which I believe/hope fits her bento box perfectly! I made it to those  dimensions, anyway. I wanted it to be well fitting, so that it would keep the box closed.

I cut apart a silicone muffin pan and sent a couple cups along.

And I made some bento bands out of some finger puppets. The cow moos, and the rabbit laughs when you squish them.

I sent a couple little things along too, but those were my crafted items! It sure was hard to think of things to make!

I finally got to my mom's to pick up my package, and everything is great! I'll be posting pics of that soon!

Wow, zoster.i your package is so incredibly awesome! I love your lunch bag; it looks really stylish and professional and has a purse disguise (..I think I have that fabric..). I never thought of cutting out the muffin trays in an already existing big tray. And those bento bands, oh man. I can't believe they talk! I was trying to think of a way to make a handmade one be better than you could buy in a store, and you've found possibly the best, coolest way ever. I have a special love for that because we put a Cookie Monster sound maker in my husband's tie when we got married (last name Cooke). But even without that anyone would love a sound making belt  Grin. (Where did you find talking finger puppets? Or did you get the talking parts from somewhere else like Build a Bear?) What is the stretchy material in it?

Ok, first I want to appologize to AbsurdAnnekuh. I take four million years to post pictures. She sent me my first lovely bento box!

It is tupperware brand so I know it is sturdy to last my rough and tumble lifestyle. It is the prettiest shade of blue ever!

She included bags for me to keep a water bottle, an insulated zipper pouch for the bento box and two customized tote bags. One even has my name on it!

Here are the accessories that she included for me: two pairs of orange chopsticks, a sauce bottle, divider grass, some candy Smiley, and two sizes of paper divider cups!

She also included this little vinyl back pack full of Jelly Bar snacks. I didn't know what they were and a I froze a few thinking that they were like otter pops  Roll Eyes oops!

And lastly, a gratuitus overall picture!

I had too much fun with this swap! I haven't made my first lunch in it yet but maybe this week I will muster up the nerve Smiley

Thanks AbsurdAnnekuh for your great swap package!


Looking for dead pointe shoes.

This is so awesome! I don't know where I was when this went on. I hope there's another sometime.
