This is a great effect done with nothing more than a tube of Chap Stick and a deck of cards. Here's the effect:

A spectator picks a card and folds it into quarters. You cause the card to vanish. You then introduce a regular tube of Chap Stick and tell the spectator that magicians like to use Chap Stick as magic wands.

You show the fine print on the Chap Stick and shake it back and forth, the fine print TURNS into the selected card.

You then open the Chap Stick and insite the tube is the selected card.

This is a great trick from Geoffrey Dove. I've already done it at a corporate function and it killed!

I recommend this to anyone who wants a super strong walk-around effect that is all ready to go in your pocket. All the gimmicks are supplied and there is nothing to guess!

Mark Jenest has this on DVD (miracles while you wait) called "chap trick".
not the selected card being on the fine print but the card in the tube.

The effect seems ok but not very usable for a situation where you'll be doing it over and over.

Hello Frank you can repeat the effect with Chapstick the gimmicks will allow you to do this with two different card revelations.

This is a great torn and restored effect as you give them a torn corner to hold. The card vin the tube is missing a corner and they match.

I received mine yesterday. Great effect! Easy to carry around, and easy to perform. Highly recommended for magicians who like to do magic that appears totally impromptu!

Niva I credit Mark Jenest for the revelation of the card in the chapstick container . The effect is the LOGO on the chapstick changes to the selected card . The card in the chapstick container is not the effect for a climatic ending you can perform it that way . Credit is given to mark Jenest if you want to end the routine with the card in the chapstick container .Hope this clears it up for you.
Best ,
Geoffrey.
