It's the the bitty bento
This idea came from 2 things,which somehow fit together. One was my grandma,who is diabetc and has to sort and measure out her food consumption (she loves the diabetic cookies,but can't eat the whole box) and the second was from my lust for bentos.

I though about making this a how-to but really it's just mini snack foods and alot of free time XD. All I used to make this is a mint tin (or jelly belly tin) line the bottom with a napkin,and depending on the size of your food, just pile it all in there. The chopsticks are made from,well chop sticks,which have been cut and sanded with a nail file.
From left the right the snacks in this are,5 lifesavers gummies, 3piece of granola bar, a stick of orbt gum (hard to see)and 2/3 rd of a chips ahoy cookie. The white thing on top is a rainblow gumball broken in halves(sorta) I used tin foil in it since my napkin was pretty thin.
And The chopsticks are wrapped up in foil (or paper) and packed insde. (And I mean packed) It's great if you have to limit the amount of snacks you eat or just don't want to consume a whole box of cookies (It's hypnotizing some days @_@ )You can use the sandwich size plastic containt and cupcake papers,like granny does and have the full size ^^
