Shoestring Bento: Owl
Recently a bloggy friend of mine, Grace from Eats Amazing (she inspired this shoestring bento with her owl lunch), posted about how the circle cutter is an under appreciated cutter. A woman after my own heart.
I have to say, I completely agree with her. When I started thinking about this series, I knew I wanted to use the circle cutter because it’s so stinking versatile. Who would have thought it could make an owl, a moon and an archery target? (Well, besides me and Grace 😉
In this lunch:
Great Harvest Honey Whole Wheat Bread
Applegate Farms Ham
This lunch was served in Easy Lunch Boxes. The circle and linzer cutters were made by Wilton. I used a knife to cut the cucumbers and jicama, the circle for the eyes and the triangle for the beak. I made the wing indents using the large circle cutter.
