Panda Rice Tutorial
Step #2: With wet hands, form two small ball of rice. Place each rice
ball on a square or rectangular piece of nori paper large enough to wrap
around the ball.
Step #3: Wrap the nori paper around the rice ball and pinch at the
bottom. Trim any excess nori from the bottom. Keep in mind that the
bottom will not be visible, so it does not need to be perfect!
Step #5: Fold a piece of nori paper in half and free-hand cut the black
eye area using scissors. This will give you two identical pieces.
Place those in the box, as well.
Step #6: Free-hand cut a nose using scissors. Place the nose in the box.
