Special lunch box notes

Yesterday I read a post on one of my most favorite blogs ("Savory Sweet Life") that made me think I should start adding these simple touches in my daughter's lunch boxes...
I have done it before with a Post-It note or with a little sticker, nothing fancy. On all occasions my daughter mentioned how much she enjoyed it once she got home from school.. Being the girly girl she is, I am sure today's lunch will be a hit:

Here is the inspirational photo from Savory Sweet Life post:

And, here is what I did on my daughter's obento today:

A simple sprig of mint with a nasturtium from the garden and some ribbon ties for the Nutella sandwich. I hope she likes it!

Hard Boiled Eggs - the cute way

I am amazed at how cute simple boiled eggs can come out if you have the time... Here is a DIY tutorial at Anna, the Bento Factory - so neat that she even thought of a way to do it at home without the Japanese molds!
I definitely will try one soon - star shape or Hello Kitty? My daughter will probably prefer the last one... the only problem: she does not eat hard boiled eggs, only scrambled...
