DIY bento accessories - rice and pasta mold - flower

Last week, I wrote a post on how to make your own leaf shaped and heart shaped bento accessories. This time round I will show you how I make my own flower shaped rice mold out of the remaining plastic "bottle". Simply cut the end of the bottle according to the desired height.

This can also be used for certain types of pasta. As long as you work fast and the rice is not too hot for your hands, you can just pack the rice into the mold and pop it out just like how you make sandcastles.

For a more detailed write up on tools and basic steps on how to DIY bento accessories, you can check this out.
