DIY bento accessories - Circle shapes - plastic bottles

It's the time of the week again. My stash of soft drink bottles are getting full and I'm going back to the stores to get some cash refunds for being a nice environmentally friendly person :D Speaking of plastic bottles, they make great circle shapes without us even doing anything!

Bottle caps make pretty good cutters for boiled carrots, or cheese / ham cutters, so I do have some of them lying around the house. If you are into charaben, they do make great basic small round "head" shapes too. Scroll down to see how I make non-circular shapes out of my DIY bento accessory :)

Here's how I use round bottle caps as vegetable cutters to produce other shapes.
