Orlan,
Yes, I got that. And then you will finish with something that looks like a spread of mini cards.
But the original post from BitterBrewer asked for a method where the mini deck could be handled and placed in a mini card box.
With the Lance Burton method (which I suppose use the same principle as Diminishing Returns) you can't do anything but collecting the mini cards an immediately make them big again.

Ahh, that's because you're missing the switch! That's the reason I linked to the video. Smile
My idea was to do the switch (done before the cards change size - just like in the video), then you spread the deck vertically (apparently a full size deck, everything looks normal), and the deck shrinks as you close the spread and turn it over. You can immediately spread the mini deck. It's a normal mini deck you can use and put in a mini card box.

You only need one full size top cover card (with a little prep work).
Makes sense?

It makes sense to me if you mean you spread the apparently full size deck with the cards turned in the direction of the spread making a narrow spread?
That is possible. Even if it looks a bit strange.

Try with a split deck.

regular deck to two mini decks

Bob Kings Shrinker from Richards Almanac comes to mind for a shrinking deck effect.

There's a wooden version of a vanishing card box on the big auction now that says you can change a poker size deck to a mini deck...

I would love to meet the guy who thought up that mirror handling! That is very very clever!

Thanks for sharing, Ryan Lockwood
The more I learn about Magic, the less I seem to know,

And whenever I start to think Im the master,

I get taught I'm just a student.
