I don't know about you, but I'm usually packing snacks for the day or smaller bites to eat for lunch, so it's nice to have containers that help keep the food separate. And a little sparkle is fun, too! Check out how to make these glitter bento boxes...

Here's how...
1. Follow directions on box to mix the resin.
2. Add glitter to resin and mix.
3. Pour resin mixture into the top of each lid, carefully smoothing out to get an even layer.
4. Let fully dry, about 24 hours.

Ta-dah! They're a fun and practical piece for lunch or snacks! If you stack them, we like to secure them together with a thick colorful band.
