#3 in Magic hot-list
Although 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 pile and which in the face down pile.
In this document two routines are revealed with one following a mentalism theme and another with a more bizarre ritualistic feel. Finally, an idea for children with ghosts and a wizard is suggested. The beauty of course is in the unlimited customization potential once the formula is known. Comes complete with two reproducible templates designed by a graphic artist.
