Diagonally-Cut Ham Flowers: Colorful Bento Gap-Fillers

Diagonally-Cut Ham Flowers: Colorful Bento Gap-Fillers

I wanted a lot of people to be able to make pretty ham flowers, so I uploaded the instructions!

Ingredients

Ham
1 slice

Steps

1. Fold a round slice of ham into half, and make diagonal cuts into the folded edge that are about 1 cm apart. Roll up the ham after making the cuts. The cuts shouldn't be too shallow or too deep.
2. Additional note! If you roll the ham too tightly, it won't open up. Shift the ham a little (about 1 mm) at the start, and try rolling it verrry slowly.
3. As you roll it slowly, there will be about a 5 mm shift at the end between the 2 halves of the ham.
4. Seen from the top, it looks like a flower blooming!
