Back to school, back to work, just for picnics, snacking in the car, trying new things.. whatever it may be, this five minute chic bento box DIY is just too cute not to make! And by make, I mainly mean assemble since technically there’s nothing to really make here. Which also means there’s no excuse for you to not go around snacking like a true model. See what I did there?! It makes perfect sense when you consider that snacking and packing a lunch is meant to be a super quick task, plus it’s a fun new twist to try out in lieu of the traditional lunch bag.
Naturally it wouldn’t be a bento box if we didn’t show you how to properly pack your snacks, so we filled them with our current favorite things for snacking around the studio, too — raspberries, blueberries, cashews, and last, but definitely not least, The Laughing Cow® cheese dippers that I eat like there’s no tomorrow. There’s also a lot of cheddar popcorn mixed into that list, too, but we nixed it for the sake of not cheddar dusting all of our fruits, if you will…
You can use any container you’d like, but naturally we went with a gold lid version
Your favorite snacks
Like I said, you can make one of these sets with just about any cute, food safe box you can find. All you have to do is fill them with your favorite snacks, and wrap the silicon band around the box as a classy new alternative to a lunch box.
Pretty cool right?!
I also love the idea that you can color code the bands so that if you’re packing snacks for a household, each person will know which is there’s. Do you all have any clever, glam snacking tricks of the trade?!
A big thanks to our friends at The Laughing Cow® for partnering with us on this post!
