Not sure what Nicks trick to get cellophane back on is but years ago I did a trick that involved removing cellophane but needed to put it back on of course. My method was to take 2 cards place them on the outside of the case one on top one on bottom but protruding at least half way past the bottom of the box. Pinch them against card case with thumb and fore finger of one hand and with the other take cellophane and slide it over these two cards which is easy if you "pinch them together making them way narrower than the cellophane then at the same time pull cards and cellophane together up and around the deck then remove the 2 cards. Its almost acting like a shoe horn.

Yes, genius! Thank You for that, Scott.
One night I was in a hurry to get to a performance and I put my shirt on where my pants should go and I put my pants on where my shirt should go. So then during the show I had to be careful not to say, "Notice that there is nothing up my sleeves"!


How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Regardless! For magicians darkness is a time for d'lite.

Menny Lindenfeld has a great little “gimmick“ to put the cellophane back on.
I really like in the clear for the switch.

In the clear is better suited for the switch. The bonus idea that was inspired by Sealed doesn’t look that good in the explanation.
Too much movement in my opinion. But I will use in the clear for the switch!
You can set up your card box and are ready to perform anywhere.
I really really like it!!! Well done Nicholas Lawrence!!!

Just got this- practical, easy, organic. You do end clean after a nicely motivated switch he explains and as others have said, you are reset almost immediately. One of my better recent purchases.

I don't want to be repurchasing a trick for a gimmick. is this something that you can use for walkaround, and can you remake the gimmick in the future?

What other effects is this good for besides folded card inside the cellophane? I can't do mercury fold.

Could someone maybe compare this to sealed and maybe some of the pros and cons compared to it? I have sealed 1.0 and it is the worst magic product I have ever bought. This looks super good just want to make sure I don't get burned again.

Hey its magic look up a special way to score a card to do an easy mercury fold.
I started thinking how the heck do you put a card in the cellophane on the deck for a switch?
this might look good but is it really natural? I don't want to buy sealed and stealed 2.0 either.

I have sealed 1 and 2 (yes, I actually fell for it twice) and they are nothing like this. Sealed is crazy clever and ultimately useless. This is simple and well worth it. Can’t say much more. Glad I bought In the Clear, not glad I bought Sealed. Twice.

The one thing keeping me from this is who in the world would put a card in the cellophane, half pulled off their card box?
it just seems like a setup. not natural. even the clear boxes make more sense than that if you think about it.
any help on this?

A magician would, for any number of reasons but that depends on the patter you choose, which should incorporate a motivation that connects with your character. Isolation might be a reason, to keep your hands from manipulating the object or to keep them from interfering with the magic, just off the top of my head.

"as I do not want to touch it anymore I put it in the cellophane so can see it all the time but is not able to manipulate with some sort of skillfull fingertricks.." - so you sell it as a setup but a setup for the reason of making trickery impossible.. Smile

my question: is the gimmick included?
