This is what you’ll have for one bird.
Hot glue lightly and quickly around the edges leaving a 1″ to 1.5″ opening with no glue. Place the other circle on top. Do this quickly so the glue does not dry.
Glue a wing onto each side of your bird. Keep in mind that the beak will be placed in the opening when it’s glued shut. So align the wings appropriately.
You should now have an open pocket.
Here is how to make a quick funnel if needed for your rice. Fill your bird with rice.
Make sure you have room to close the open area to glue it together.
Glue the beak onto one side.
Then glue the opening together while keeping the rice back.
Using a fine point black marker make stitch marks and an eye.
To heat, place in a microwave for 10 to 15 seconds. NO MORE. Test with your own microwave. Repeat as needed once it cools.
