Bento Attempt #2

This is my second and I think last attempt at making a bento. As mentioned in the previous blog, if your bento has eyes, then it has a better chance of looking cute. The other bento was too sophisticated looking so I decided to take a whimsical approach.

I decided to go for a garden theme.

CATERPILLAR-made of edamame pods
GRASS/LEAVES-arugula and basil leaves
BUTTERFLY-apple flesh, carrot, and nori
BEE-dyed apple flesh, nori
LADY BUGS-baby tomatoes
TURTLE-apple skin, apple flesh, zucchini
FLOWERS-carrots and corn
BAMBOO FOREST-zucchini peels
All the eyes are apples flesh and nori
