  3. Cut out a small triangle from the yellow card stock, fold it in half, and glue it onto the head to make a tuft of feathers.
  4. Glue on the googly eyes and wait about 2 minutes for the glue to dry. Then, cut a circle out of the white felt and glue on to the buddy’s belly.
  5. Fold the legs up, place the mandarin on top of the legs, and tape the wings around the Halos mandarin.
  6. Cut two triangles out of yellow card stock, fold them in half, and glue them onto the back of the buddy to make a cute little tail.
