How Can You FACE It? Bento Cutter Review and Giveaway! (Ended)

AllThingsForSale is a great place to find all sorts of fun bento gear. Not only do they carry most of the same stuff as the other bento supply sites, but they're based in the US, so you don't have to pay heinous international shipping charges! And if you register, you can save your shopping cart over multiple visits, in case your husband catches you shopping you don't have time to look at everything in one go. And, my favorite part - you can set up a wish list! Scooooore! Since you'll want to keep track of all the things to get when your husband isn't looking birthday money rolls in.

One of my favorite bento tools from allthingsforsale is my face cutter set.
faces cutters
Unlike many picks or cutter sets with specific themes, these cutters are very versatile. You can make people or animals, or add features to cookie-cutter animals. 
Or add a face to just about anything!

They are ideal for cutting lunch meats, sliced cheese, fruit leather, egg sheets, and tofu wraps. They also work on nori, cucumber or carrot peels, cabbage, spinach, or other lettuces.

Just look at all the faces in this set! There are 15 faces (#11-15 are smaller versions of #1-5,) 2 heads, 2 circles, 2 long hair shapes (to go behind the heads,) 2 bushy hair/cloud shapes, and 2 jagged bangs (makes great cracked eggshell shapes too!)

Sometimes, to get just the right face, I'll use them along with nori punchers... 
large face: eyes from this punch, mouth from #1
small face: eyes from
 this punch, mouth from this punch.
 
Other times, I might cut out some features to use with sugar eyes.
face #1 (eye used as a nose)
You can use them to cut features out of something... 
Top: heads from A, hair from B. faces 3 and 2
Bottom: heads and hair from C, faces 11 and 14
Or use the little cut-outs to add features onto something else.
#13 and #14. 
eyes from #2, mouth and nose from #10, 
whiskers and ears from an animal cutter set. 

You can even use them to imprint faces into hot dogs (be sure to do it before cooking them!)

Pretty awesome tool set, huh? Want one? Allthingsforsale is offering a lucky reader one of their very own!
