If the purpose of this is to demonstrate VMs you just want to bridge the physical interface so that the guest can access the network.  To do this you only need one physical interface.  If you have two interfaces on the same LAN than you want device teaming or LACP.  You would create a team or bond interface using the two interfaces and then create a bridge to that team or bond device.
