1. Take your wire cutters and have a good look at each side – you'll see one flat side and one indented side.
2. If you've created a wire wrapped loop, for example, open your cutters and put the jaws around the wire with the flat side facing the loop – as close to it as you can.
3. Bring the handles tightly together, ultimately cutting the wire in the exact place you want it – and leaving no unsightly stray wire. If you do happen to have a tiny piece of wire sticking out, use some flat-nosed pliers to squeeze the end of the piece into the rest of the wire.
