I had brunch with 2 dear friends… gosh, I think I have known them for, let’s just say more than half of my life! We don’t get together too often but when we do, it’s like the days we lived together in college… we just gab away about anything and everything! I brought over some brunch: bento box style! I really like my flower-shaped cookie cutters. I think I’ve used them on just about anything I can!
Breakfast sandwich: Pillsbury Grand Biscuits, lunchmeat ham, American cheese, and an egg omelet. 2 different styles of spam musubi: inspired by here and here. And then threw in some large grapes in a cupcake liner. I also made sure to place a layer of wax paper in between the food and the tissue paper because the food has a tendency to create oil marks on the tissue paper.
chopstick holders: I tucked in a little napkin too. Perfect for parties/picnics! I tucked them in between the folds of the takeout box and wrapped it with thick twine.
I’ve been inspired reading Zakka Life… I just wish I lived near a Daiso! Hope you have a lovely weekend!
One of my favorite sites to read is by Dieline. They find the most creative and well-designed packages on every day items: most seem to center around food too! I love a well-packaged box or label.
For example: here’s a sample of Crayola through the years.
I distinctly remember everything after the first row. Did I just date myself? probably! I still remember begging my mom for the 64 pack with the built-in sharpener. For some reason, it seemed so expensive at the time [it probably was] and I’d have to resort for the 24 pack OR reuse the crayons from last year. I didn’t know that they had a 96 pack!
How fun would this be to give to kids at a party just to keep them occupied? Origami in a bag!
They also showcase a lot of work that students created for projects like this one:
