Default tricks for cutting tulle?

I HATE cutting tulle, mine always looks so super messy resulting in an even messier looking tutu. Anybody have any tips? Better yet, Is there anybody out there that sells pre-cut strips of tulle? TIA

Do you use a rotary cutter? That would be my only suggestion...HTH

Buy it in spools - "drape" it across a table, letting the spool fall to the floor - that will keep the tulle taut and give you a cleaner cut. Also I just use scissors I got from Walmart for $1

yeah I buy them online nashvillewraps.com is where I get them...and also with the ones off the bolt you can roll the tulle up and than cut it into the width you want, that makes it faster and straighter

I buy it in the spools and use my TOTTS bowmaker to hold the spools while cutting. I use a rotary cutter and "bunch" the tulle between my thumb and index finger while cutting

I saw someone roll her tulle up like a jelly roll & cut it into six inch sections. I tried it and my tutu came out great.
