I just push them close together on the elastic.
this is how I calculate it...
20" waist x 5 strips/inch = 100 strips (then I go on to calculate how many yards I'll use)
I cut my elastic about 17 -18" because as you add the tulle it will stretch the elastic a bit (but don't worry, there is still so much room to grow!)
Here is a pic of a regular 2-layered tutu. Again, I just went long strip, short strip, long strip, short strip etc. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...37379709648709
