I guess it depends on the thickness of the strips because lately I've just been cutting them with a scissors. That does lead to some fraying, but not too bad. I just trim the ends as best I can and dip the ends in a drop of CA and hit it with accelerator and everything stays together fairly well. You can even sand the ends down a bit to smooth them out once they've been CA'd.

I think that if you break the strips and then trim the filaments and then add a touch of CA to the ends, you should be OK.

When I'm not feeling too lazy I'll use a dremel with a cut-off wheel to cut the strips, but even then I end up with some frayed edges. Again, the CA trick cures that issue.
