Pack Your Lunch DIY Style!

Lunch on the go, lunch in the office, lunch while carpooling … in this day and age, this is a very common thing and for a lot of us, a part of every day. Packing our lunch is therefore a very important thing; we want it to be stored properly, but because we have an eye for cute looking things we definitely don’t want our lunch bags to look boring and monotone.
