Into Thin Air





Effect
Make a card vanish into thin air!

Supplies You Need

* Ordinary deck of cards
* Handkerchief with a hem
* Toothpick
* Scissors

Setup
Take a toothpick and match it up against the end of one of the cards. Take the scissors and cut the toothpick so it's the same as the width of the card. Poke it into the hem of the handkerchief. Make sure it won't fall out.

How to Perform
Take the deck of cards and spread them out in a pile on the table in front of the audience.

Bring out your handkerchief and say, "I will make an ordinary playing card disappear, right before your very eyes," or something similar.

Place the handkerchief on top of the pile of cards, with the part with the toothpick underneath the rest of the handkerchief. Look casual as you do this.

Picture 1: Into Thin Air: Magic Trick 28 With one hand, pick up the toothpick between your thumb and forefinger and raise it up from the pile of cards. It will look like you are holding the edge of one of the cards.

Say, "And it's gone!" as you wave the handkerchief in the air, showing there's no card inside. It's vanished into thin air!
