Tuesday's Tip ~ 5

Rainbow Sprinkles!!!

Rainbow Sprinkles are not only colorful but can bring your lunch to life!
These small colorful creations work great to create mouths, noses,
eyebrows and even a whimsical unicorn mane! I have found it helpful
to use a pair of tweezers and sometimes a small dab of peanut butter
to place the sprinkles on my sandwiches.

Here are a few examples below along with links to the lunches...
