lay your tile square tile side down place your outlet plate on the tile and outline it with a pen or pencil. You should be able to cut the tile with a scissor. Make sure to mark and cut the holes in the outlet too.
Remove the plate covers than rough cut out the plug area. The plate will cover up the ugly cuts
Are you having trouble with the placement of the outlets? If so, use a piece of paper and place it where your next piece of tiles is going. Mark around the outlet with marker, pencil..... (remember not to mark the whole shape, leave an edge so your outlet doesn't show) then put your paper pattern on your tiles. Make sure your pattern edge matches with your tile edge. That should enable you to cut your tiles in the right place for your outlet. Did that make sense? Good luck.
lay over outlets, then when all is done. go back and cut a cross in the plastic and open it up. Remove the outlet cover and tuck the plastic down flat and then replace the cover plate.
