When you use the wrapping method how do you cut to make all the strips even? with scissors? with the rotary cut?

Questions, questions...

What is the best way to cut the tulle? Do you use sissors or a rotary cutter?

Thanks
This is what I do:
I wrap the tulle around this one chair I have, and then it is all lined up nice, once I cut it up the side, I lay it on a table, and have this long ruler and I use my rotory and cut. Goes pretty fast.

I do the same with the rolls and a rotary cutter. used to use scissors until the cutter changed my world of tulle!!! You can also wrap the tulle from the rolls around a cookie sheet - top to bottom - and then make the cuts from there. Very easy. There is a tutorial on that out here somewhere.
