How to Make a Bento Box Jelly Flower

  • Use this technique for the flower bento lunch box.

    1. Start with a piece of soft sandwich bread.

  • 2. Cut off the crusts of the bread. Try out this snack recipe for those extra bread crusts.
  • 3. Cut bread into two pieces.
  • 4. Gently push down the back of a knife on the middle of the bread to make a crease. (You don't want to cut it through, so if the back of your knife is thin, put plastic wrap over the bread before making a crease.)
  • 5. Spread the jam on the bread.
  • 6. Gently fold each piece with index fingers and thumbs.
  • 7. Push the edges in with your index fingers to make a petal shape.
  • 8. Use plastic wrap to ensure that the flower petal is sealed together.
  • 9. Place the jelly flower petals together to make a flower.
