The Magic of Love
Hello Kitty wishes for everyone to have a Happy Valentine's Day! She is using her magic wand to create love wherever she goes. A-chan thought that it was a pretty bento but she couldn't tell what was going on without a little narration. I was so excited to use my lovely gold sugar again that I sprinkled it quite liberally.
In the bento: Peanut butter and sugar sprinkle sandwich with Hello Kitty on top, carrot flowers, tofu heart, black olive, apple with hearts cutout and a huge chocolate heart.
Off to the side is a glimpse of our Valentine's project yesterday. A-chan cut paper, stamped stamps, punched heart shaped holes, cut ribbons, made chocolates and tied them all up together. She was so excited about giving them to her schoolmates today. They are not as fancy as she wanted them to be, but we managed to get them all made in one afternoon!
Hello Kitty's dress and the magic hearts were all cut from a new product that I found at Hobby Lobby, called Sugar Sheets. It was very stiff and wouldn't work with cookie cutters but the exacto knife did a great job. I love the color, especially since my pink egg sheets don't seem to stay pink in the pictures that I take! The rest of Hello Kitty was cut from Provolone cheese, as were the letters. Her face was punched from nori and her bow cut from carrot.
Happy Valentine's Day!
