First, I would use one of the slip sheets as a template to trace out the exact shape you want. Then, using an angle grinder with a diamond blade, you can trim the tiles to match. When using the angle grinder to perform the cut, take multiple smaller "bites" from the top - don't try to cut through the whole tile body in one shot.

RotoZip has a diamond 3" blade available for their tool. The smaller the diamond blade the tighter the radius that can be cut.
