Cutting Ceiling Tile to fit odd angled room

I have a 13x11 room that has an angled 'bow-window' for lack of a better term. It is actually 2 small windows which border a larger central window. This area sits out over the first floor roof. My question is this: I am installing ceiling tiles using a direct adhesive to the ceiling and I have come to this rather odd angled window situation; the area where the ceiling is not square and meets the shape/angle of the windows. What is the easiest way to map out and cut the tiles to match the small angled areas on the ceiling.

I am totally remodeling the bedroom and this is my first big DIY project and I need some help!!!!

Thanks Jason

You could make a template from cardboard or heavy paper, then transfer it to the tile.

You're gluing acousticle ceiling tiles to your ceiling ? How are you handling the seams ?
