I was asking Brian at Mammoth Mountaineering about this when I bought new skins to replace the crappy Burton ones. He said to cut one side flush with the edge, then move it over two edge widths, and cut the other side flush with the other edge. This will leave you with a skin that completely covers the base except for the edges. YMMV.
