Yes, for the long strings, cut them outside! I used to do this, and it looked like a shocking pink bird got in a fight with a cat...and lost! I also remember seeing a post about wrapping tape around the place where you are going to cut, then cutting with the tape in place. I bet if you search, you can find more specifics.
I actually buy packs of "puffs" from PaperMart. They are precut, sometimes need a little work or more than one. To me, it is worth the added expense to prevent the mess!
