How to cut the bag ends into the various shapes so they don't have to try to get tips. Does anyone know of a chart or template showing the various cutting configurations all on one page? You know...the diagonal for a ruffle, v for the leaf, flat/round for a line, etc. I thought she could make copies of it and hand it out with the cake?

There's not a lot you can do just cutting the ends off of decorating bags instead of using tips because the bags are too soft to hold a shape like metal or plastic tips would. I've only ever been able to do whatever I would do with the smallest round tips by cutting off the tip end of the bag, and even then I usually end up wishing I'd used a tip instead!
