Scarlet Macaw Bento by mindfire3927 Scarlet Macaw Bento by mindfire3927
Finally got a chance to make an animal bento! A little bummed that my box is so small--couldn't cram half the food I wanted into it :(

LEFT: Scarlet macaw made from bell peppers, eggplant, and blue egg sheet on stir fry pork branch, with rice of course :D

RIGHT: hibiscus cup (carved from potato and painted with food color) of chili bean dipping sauce, beef spring roll, and rainbow of fruit (strawberry, grapefruit, pineapple, melon, blueberry, grape) LOL :D

Your Macaw is awesome, but I had to search for a few words, most of all the blue egg, for we don't have such chicken species in my country (or at least I've never heard about it).
Amazing.

i'm so excited! I can't wait to see, i'm gonna watch you now.

BTW, saw the box and LOVED it. So jealous. i might just have to make one myself. What did you use?

So glad you liked it!

It was a premade craft box I found at Hobby Lobby craft store, and then I used pieces of craft wood (also found there) to make the inserts and then woodburned/stained/glossed.

I think I'm most impressed by the hibiscus, it's a really neat addition.

Thanks! It took up a lot more space than I wanted, but I refused to NOT have it in the box (it's my fave part too) :D

Lol thanks! Yes, I ended up eating half the pieces of fruit rainbow before it got into the box (nibbling while you work is my fave part of bento)!
