I suggest making a practice piece first like I have here to test out and get comfortable with the idea.
Before I started with my satin binding (notoriously difficult to work with) I tried this with a small length of cotton binding and it worked great. We're technically creating an exact replica of the angle in the fabric, with our bias tape.
First, at the center of your binding fold it in half, wrong sides out, and press.

Mark your fabric angle onto the folded bias tape. I used a disappearing fabric marker.
Pin the fold in place so that it doesn't shift or bunch on you while it's being sewn.
Stitch along your markings, back stitching in place at the edges and then trim away the excess at the fold.
When you trim away the point of the bias binding, it should be the same angle as your inverted corner to be bound.
Open your bias tape and press.
Then you can sew on the binding. I prefer to do this by hand as a point is tricky to sew under the best of circumstances. On this piece, I did it with a machine and it came out sort of messy (sorry, still running low on my sleep).
Voila! Any questions?
