Here is the Original Discussion Thread

Details of swap: This swap is for craftsters who make bentos or are interested in starting out in the world of bentos!
Don't know what a Bento is? Then here a couple of links I think are very informative:
Lunch in a Box , Just Bento, Cooking Cute and lots of flickr groups: Obento, kawaii, and beginners.

Here are links to the first three galleries:
Bento Swap Gallery
Bento Swap 2 Gallery
Bento Swap 3 Gallery

You are required to craft 1 medium and 2 smalls plus purchase 2 items. You must decide how much to spend with your partner. You may also send extras but remember that extras are not required and you should not expect any extras back. You may decide with your partner if you both wish to send extras for a fair swap. I should not need to mention that everything sent should be bento related but Ill put it here just in case. =)

Once the swap has started please keep in contact with you partner. Please bookmark the thread and post at least once in it. You are required to post pictures of what you received in the gallery. If you cant, let your partner know before they send so they can post pictures for you. I recommend that you take photos of your items before sending if you have a camera. When you send and receive you need to PM your partner and the organizer. Failure to follow these rules will be noted in your profile. =) Im not that scary, just want to make it a happy swap experience for everyone.

If you want to participate, please PM the following questionnaire:

We have 6 swappers now! Slowly but surely, more people will trickle in. Either way this is going to be fun!

I went to see the cherry blossoms today at Brooklyn Botanical Garden and I packed bento boxes for my friends and I. It was the first time I packed a bunch of boxes for a picnic. It was so nice to eat bento outside.  Smiley

welcome! sign-ups are a little long for this swap (until may 1) so nothing you can do now except brainstorm ideas on what you can make. and you can look around town or online for potential bento gear. once you get your partner you can start crafting!

and this applies to anyone, feel free to practice making bento with what you have and posting pics on this thread! i'll post up some pics later today.

i made this for a cherry blossom viewing picnic. my normal bentos are nowhere near this fancy!

sakura flower shaped onigiri (rice ball), miso chicken, roasted potatoes, tamagoyaki (rolled egg), cherry tomatoes, orange slice and grapes. basil leaf for decoration.  Smiley

This sounds like lots of fun! I make Bento for my husband and myself for work, and I love the thought of doing a Bento swap! I'll have to think about it, though, I don't know if we have some money to spare and if I even have time to spare! XD
