Before I go with a trick, I would like to ask you what kind of tricks do you prefer more: the ones with a video or picture attached to it, explaining it, or videos of someone doing magic (D. Copperfield, C. Angel, D. Blaine) with an explanation.Anyway, a good trick is one of those that you can repeat a lot of times before the same audience and make them drop their jaws every time. This trick is one of those and it is easy to make. You will pick up one card from a pile of cards with a handkerchief, and with a few magic words make it disappear. It's quite easy to do this. All you need is a deck of cards (or just a bundle of them), a handkerchief and a toothpick. More...Before you start with the trick, cut the toothpick so it is the same length as the width of the card (width is the shorter side of the card). Then poke it into the hem of the handkerchief. Make sure it doesn't fall out. When you perform the trick, scramble the deck on the table and cover the pile with your handkerchief.
Now pick up the handkerchief (together with the toothpick) with your thumb and forefinger and raise it in the air. The audience will think that you are holding a card behind the handkerchief. Now mutter some magic words and wave the handkerchief in the air, showing the audience that the "card" has disappeared. Just watch out so you don't accidentally throw the toothpick into the audience.
