Paper & Paper Money

Paper folding, paper tearing and tricks with paper money are at the heart of this section. I am fascinated by paper. I consider it one of the most important inventions. You might not see it that way, but paper is a hightech product. Paper machines are pretty much the largest and most complicated manufacturing installations in use by humankind. Paper comes in all shapes and sizes and is ideal for customization with a slogan for your next corporate gig or a personal message. Vanishing a dollar bill or changing it into a hundred dollar bill will always garner respect and admiration. It is human nature.

Dave Arch

The Scissors Race by Dave ArchA little friendly competition between audience members might be just what's needed to add a piece of variety to your show. As two contestants compete in a paper cutting race, the magic starts to happen. Both the contestants and the audience are surprised by the unexpected outcome. Ultimately it ends in a tie. Truly there must be magic in the air.

In addition . . . Dave has added as a bonus another non-magical competition that he used for over a decade to decide who would be given his Giant Balloon Reindeer.

The Repeat Bill Trick by Tom Bowyer & T. A. WhitneyEven the most jaded audience will sit up and take notice when effects with real money are performed. Here's an entertaining story about a shopaholic who continues to spend (real) money, but somehow manages to leave the store with the same amount of cash she started with.

This is a time-tested routine that's made even better by using genuine currency (which you supply) while you follow these illustrated instructions. But that's not all. You also get additional presentation ideas, plus a template for constructing your own Repeat Bills outfit with whatever denomination of currency you wish. ...

Harry Houdini

Houdini's Paper Magic by Harry HoudiniPaper is a fascinating product. Being the son of a paper maker (my father worked many years for a paper manufacturer) I developed early on a fondness to paper. And Houdini's Paper Magic is all about paper. Tricks with paper, paper folding, paper tearing, and paper puzzles. It seems today paper folding was replaced by balloon modeling. I have only seen once an act entirely based on paper tearing. Maybe this ebook version of Houdini's Paper Magic inspires one to build an act around paper. This book is definitely a good start. The Modern Conjurer has also an excellent chapter on paper folding.

Mike Kempner

Magnetic Money by Mike KempnerThis effect can only be done one-on-one with a willing spectator, because the spectator has to close their eyes at a crucial moment. If they peek they will see how it is done. It uses an old bar bet type of trick that is done with a bill and a coin and turns it into a magic effect.

How would you like to be able to magnetize currency? Well, now, you can create the illusion of doing so in just one second. With Magnetic Money by mentalist Mike Kempner, you will be able to instantly (in a matter of one second) demonstrate to your spectator that you are able to magnetize currency, and the best...

Paper Magic by Percy AbbottIf you already have Bag-o-Trix you have this book. Although Percy Abbott put his name on the book, UF Grant said many of the ideas were his. This dispute later resulted in UF Grant leaving the Abbott company. There are over forty of the most unusual, unique and amazing new tricks that can be worked with paper. This is a new and untouched field. Paper tricks are easy to carry and are most effective. A few of the outstanding effects are:

Paper Folding Formula by Dave ArchAlthough this principle has been used to create multiple routines, the formula for creating those routines has not been widely revealed. In its generic form, a piece of paper with multiple pictures, letters, numbers, or words is folded in half multiple times widthwise or lengthwise as determined by the volunteer. After the spectator cuts around the perimeter of the folded packet to form a stack of individual squares, some will be face up in the stack and some face down. As unbelievable as it seems, due to the formula, the magician has complete control over which pieces end up in the face up...

Alida: Little Winged One by (Benny) Ben Harris
"A cool and animated levitation of a card or dollar bill... EASY TO MAKE!"
My goodness, this little effect created a shit-storm when it was released in 2000! I don't think the attacks had been so brutal since Cosmosis (in the mid 1980s). Anyway, this simple and effective idea was loved by some (see, for example, Richard Kaufman in Genii Magazine), and hated by others (see, for example, Michael Close in Magic Magazine). Ben relishes dividing opinion, and Alida certainly did that.

However, it was also a genuine stepping stone in the thought processes that would eventually lead to Enlightenment: The Ultimate Floating Card - which is way superior. So, controversial...

After the newspaper is torn into small pieces, the magician blows on the pieces. The rough edges of the paper are seen to get smooth, and upon opening the newspaper out, it is restored. But wait, only half the paper is there. The other half falls to the floor.

The audience thinks they are the torn pieces. The packet...
