How Do I cut a mitered return on crown molding?

How Do I cut a mitered return on crown molding when I have used 2 pieces. I have used an inverted 3 1/4" baseboard against wall surface, then I have a 4 1/2" cove. PLEASE HELP!

First cut a return on the inverted baseboard, then cut a return on the crown, wrapping it around the return of the baseboard.

What Dave said, though here's a tip:

Cut the miter on a long piece first, then cut to length. That way you'll have something to hang onto safely while doing all the cutting.
