Hi, friends. David Blaine performs interesting tricks with the cards. One of which is this one. In this trick, the magician selects a card from the deck and shows it to the audience. He tore this card into small pieces and threw them. And he takes out the same card from the orange after cutting it. It seems impossible, but I will explain you how is this possible. Just like other tricks, it is simple and also interesting. You just have to be prepared for it before performing in front of the audience. Everybody can perform it easily.
Things to Be Needed
- An orange
- A plate
- Glue stick
- Pen or pencil
- Deck of cards
How to do it?
- Prepare the Orange
The first step is to take an orange and prepare it to show your illusion. Select the orange that has stem attach with it. Remove this stem carefully with the knife. Now with the help of pen or pencil make a deep hole inside the orange in which card can be fixed easily.
- Fold the Card
Take the card which you have to put in the orange. Tear it from one corner. Fold the remaining piece tightly along the long sides and then bend it. Insert it in the orange from the hole. Push it with the pen and make sure that now it is invisible.
- Paste the stem
After putting the card in the orange apply the glue on the hole and around it to attach the stem. Leave it for ten to fifteen minutes until the stem is fixed properly.
- Select the Card
Here lies the secret. You should have two identical cards. One card which is inside the orange and other in the deck. Hold the deck of cards in your hand and card piece which was the part of the card( in the orange). But it should not be visible to the public. Shuffle the cards in such a way that the same card comes to the top and you select it. You don’t need the remaining cards so place them aside. Tear the card which you have chosen and carefully mix these card pieces with the piece you have already in your hand. Pretend your audience that you are randomly selecting and select that secret piece of the card. Discard the remaining pieces to withdraw the attention of the audience.
Tell the public that you will take out its remaining part from inside the orange.
- Cut the Orange
Finally cut the orange from the center and public will be shocked to see the card inside the orange. Open it up and show to the public that it is the remaining part of that piece.
- Remove the stem from the orange carefully that it looks natural.
- Paste the stem and make sure that it will not fall while performing.
- Hide the piece of the card in your hand, and it should be invisible.
