Snipping new Mum plant starts

In starting my own seeds, the packet reads: "Snip the plants." Does this mean the first little starts? Mine are about 1 1/2 inches high with little leaf buds on the end. Where do I snip? Or do you recommend this?

After the mum plants develop 6 to 8 sets of leaves you can pinch out the growing tip to induce branching and a more compact plant.
