Slice tortillas into triangle shapes, and spread onto cookie sheet. Spray tortillas with pan spray lightly on top.
Cook for 3-5 minutes, then flip.
Cook for an additional 3-4 minutes or until crispy.
Add a sprinkle of salt, roughly a teaspoon.
You will also need a mini star cookie cutter if adding the star garnishes.I had a full-size seedless watermelon, and roughly a quarter equaled two cups of diced melon. If you have a smaller melon, likely you will need a half of a melon.
