Koi Bento & "Blogiversary" Linky Pary!

THIS POST CONTAINS AFFILIATE LINKS
One of the first bentos I ever saw was this one of a Koi.  I was immediately intrigued and have kept that image in my head ever since.  Although I began making bento several months beforehand, this weekend marked the one year anniversary of my bento blog.  I thought it would be appropriate to make a bento honoring that first one I saw.  
What's in the Box?
Koi and Water - Rice Paper Covered Rice w/ Icing Eyes
Lettuce, Tri-Color Carrots, Cucumber, Broccoli, Tomatoes
Mini-Apple, Strawberry, Kumquat
Chicken Fajita Meat & Black Olives

SAME OR SIMILAR SUPPLIES:


Now, let's PARTY!!!  
Link up your favorite bento(s) that you have made.  I would love for you to include a link back to my blog somewhere on yours.  Please share some love and visit a few other blogs that have linked up, too!

    1. I generally try to avoid food coloring, but I did use it for the rice paper in this bento. I soaked the rice paper in a bowl of water with 1 drop of dye for about 1 minute.
