Cut the tails short enough to the middle, and they won't show. You will get the X effect that you want.

Here's the link to that thread.

I'm new to this thread but I just tried this with the figure 8 method and my Sally's clip, tied it off and got NO tails!!! You just have to make sure you lay the loops flat!!!
