You remove a deck of cards from it's case. Fanning the cards, you show all the cards are blank on both sides. You explain that cards are usually printed on a printing press, but you are now going to attempt to do it by magic!
You now tell your audience you are just going to THINK of a card....you cut the deck anywhere, and your THOUGHT OF CARD appears! Showing it, it only has a face & no back!
You THINK of a DIFFERENT card & make it APPEAR like you did the first time!
You now slowly fan the deck showing BOTH sides of EVERY CARD....the deck is AGAIN completely BLANK! The two cards you made appear have VANISHED.
Can I print a back design?, you say to your audience. You now concentrate and think of a nice design. You cut the deck and you've just PRINTED a beuatiful back design. But this card has no face!
Your audience yells, Can you print a complete deck? Backs will be easier because every card has the same back design. But for faces, I'll have to THINK of 52 DIFFERENT CARDS at the SAME TIME! Well, I'll try...as you CONCENTRATE VERY HARD....
You now riffle the cards from hand to hand so they can see BOTH SIDES OF EVERY CARD...and you have PRINTED A COMPLETE DECK.... ALL faces and backs! THIS BLOWS THEIR MINDS!
Can you make them BLANK AGAIN? With a cut of the cards and with the snap of a finger you make them return to all turn blank & unprinted again! Miraculous!
This has ALWAYS been one of my FAVORITES! And VERY EASY TO DO!
