Question Question.. cutting the tips of a tutu?

I've seen several tutus that have pretty, pointed ends and I was wondering... what is the best way to cut the tulle to achieve that look?

Do you need to cut it at a steep angle? Or just a slight angle? How is the actual cutting done?

Would anyone happen to have any pics they could share of the cutting process?

You girls are the best Thanks for any help you can offer me

I don't have the exact angle, but one of the pixie tutus I made for DD I cut the tulle too steep, and the tips scrunched up after a while... So I would say either 45 degree or less. I think some people fold the tulle in half and cut to make it an arrow point too.

If you fold your strand in half at a bit of an angle, you can use a rotary cutter to cut it

You girls are sweet.. thanks for teaching me Hopefully I'll be able to cut the ends properly. 45 degrees might be the magic number
