as needed


1. Cut out the cheese with a cookie cutter. I used a cutter from a 100-yen-store.
2. Cut out small circles around the edge with a tiny straw like the one that comes with a juice box.
3. Cut out small hearts from imitation crab, fish sausage or ham with a cookie cutter. Place them on top of the cheese from Step 2 and it's done.
4. Place everything on top of nori wrapped rice balls or on another bento item for a Valentine's Day bento box.
