Bonding is not the right thing to use. Bonding is designed for the multiple connections to go to the same device as either a fail-over, or to get additional bandwidth.

You need bridging for this. Bridging is essentially an ethernet switch implemented in software, the external network interfaces (eg, eth0) are tied to the switch, and the bridge's interface (eg, br0) is essentially the virtual interface to the virtual switch.

You will need to remove any IP address assignment from the physical interfaces, bridge them together, and then assign your IP address to the bridging interface.

yum install bridge-utils

brctl --help

I'll leave you to figure out the exact commands for your specific configuration.
