Well, realize it will be boxy and use cardboard and a good, stiff pair of scissors to make a template. a little overhang of carpet will cover up your seams.

let me see if i got it rigt... i place the cardboard against the hole i want to use... then with a pair of scissors just cut the edges till i get the disired shape?... or do i need to use a marker or fold the cardboard?

you can use a marker on the cardboard, but my recommendation is to cut up some boxes to make a sheet of cardboard you can use, start by trimming to get a rough shape, then keep trimming until you get a tight fit. then you have a template for the spot in the trunk you want to adapt to. Cut board to match. It's not easy to get the angles of curves though, so carpeting over your finished product will help a lot (just fold it back with a little bit loose, push more in as needed to make it smooth).
