A hearty thank you to the lovely Bobbie from FunBites, who generously offered me this opportunity to share the FunBites love with one lucky BentOnBetterLunches reader, with a Luv it! giveaway ♥ Just in time for Valentine's Day too! What could make Valentine's Day themed lunches and snacks more simple than the heart-shaped Luv it! cutter from FunBites?
With a Luv it! you can make an ordinary sandwich much more loveable ♥
All you need is 1 or 2 slices of bread, depending on size, toothpicks & sandwich filling. I used ham & white cheddar - because they are pink & white :) And if you want to decorate yours like I did, some stickers for the ends of the toothpicks. And a Luv it! of course!
♥ Cut 2 Luv it! hearts from your bread, and if necessary, your sandwich filling. I was able to cut both top and bottom from 1 slice of my large loaf of whole wheat. If you are using a spread, you could make the sandwich before cutting it to save time, but you'll end up with a much neater, prettier pieces if you cut the bread out first, then spread.
♥ Stack or spread your filling(s) on each piece of 1 of the hearts, top with a matching piece from the 2nd heart, and secure the stacks with a pick.
♥ Sticker Fun! If you don't have fancy party picks, only ordinary toothpicks, you can turn them into party picks with stickers! Let the kids help! All you need is stickers that are mirror images, so they are the same size & shape and line up exactly when you stick them together back to back on the end of a toothpick. Easy peasy! You could even use paper and a glue stick if you don't have stickers. I got a big bag of heart shaped foam sticker from the dollar store, and since they are foam, I can surface clean them and re-use them :)
See how how festive my Sprout's ham & cheese sandwich looks!
She was pretty pleased with it ♥
Luv it! for fruit leather! I also used the Luv it! and a sheet of fruit leather roll-up to add some extra sweetness to an otherwise pretty plain snack in a plastic Snapware container, by decorating the inside of the lid with the sticky fruit leather heart pieces to make an edible mosaic window ♥
It's a great way to send fruit leather roll-up to preschool, since Birdie needs assistance opening and unrolling it. If it's already unrolled, cut into bite-size pieces and stuck to the inside of the lid of her lunch container, she doesn't need to wait for help. If you didn't see my first FunBites review, here's another example, also using the Luv it! cutter, but arranging the pieces to make a garden scene rather than a heart:
