I've read a metal ruler helps.

You could try cutting with scissors and then just using the burner to seal the ends afterwards. I do it like that sometimes.

I used to use wood underneath when I was cutting with a woodburner, but since I found Tonya's instructions for the glass mat it's made the cuts perfect. I can't believe what a difference it made.

I haven't made a glass mat yet, but I did use my pyrex dish turned over. It worked okay.
