Tips on shaping croissant buns?

Im making croissants today, and my husband loves them as sandwich rolls (we've only ever bought them, blech). Any tips on how to shape them? Id like them about hamburger bun sized.

Main thing is to keep the dough cold. With all that butter in the dough they will be hard to work with if they get too warm. I liked the following video for some how to tips.

Good Luck!
