How to make:
First, measure the interior base of a serving tray that you desire. You can place the tray on the paper and trace the base shape of the tray by using pencil. Cut the paper using sharp scissors along the pencil line. If the paper creases, use a low temperature iron and apply it slowly on the back of the paper to remove the creases.
