Love Bug

This lady bug lunch was one of the first bento lunches I came across when I discovered the wonderful world of bento.   It inspired me when creating today's Love Bug lunch.

  • Love Bug sandwich made using the Pampered Chef sandwich cutter and decorated with cheddar cheese and icing eyes
  • Peas
  • Red grapes
  • Brownie bite

  1. Adorable! Love the little heart dots.

  2. Great! How do you keep the eyes on? I've been using a dab of peanut butter.

  3. Maureen, I use a dab of peanut butter or cream cheese to keep the eyes on. I have also found, laying a small piece of wax paper over the sandwich before closing the box, helps keep everything looking nice until lunch.
