    Trace and cut the hexagon
    Trace and cut the sides of the tray
    Glue the pieces together to create the shape
    *You can tape the pieces together while they dry
    Add a little water to some white school glue
    With a paintbrush, decoupage the paper to the tray with the glue
    *This will make it sturdy and keep your pieces in place
    When dry, paint the entire tray white
    Cut pieces of the Americana Decou-Page Paper to fit the tray
    Using the gloss Decou-Page medium, adhere the decorative paper to the tray
