I just bought a set of spring flowers ( Also called flower production on magic geek) They all have little green strings attached to them, which came tied together. How do you use these, and how do you store them so that they are not released?

You need to buy a production box.

Something like this would be good.

You produce one at a time from your fingertips and toss them into something. 35 years ago I did my with music. As for storing them. All I did was put two rubber band around them.

Do you mean palm them? I will try that. I guess it can be a hassle thugh to keep them in the rubber bands and slip them out. Thanks
By the way, does anybody have an idea what the strings are for?

The strings are so they can be tied together as a group. Then the bundle is held together closed with a single elastic band wrapped twice. Slip the band off and throw them up in the air, and they'll turn into a large bouquet of open flowers. Catch the bouquet that you produced.

They can also be produced individually, or as a group, from other props.

Hope I'm not tipping too much info on the open forum.

I keep mine tied together and held in a clip at the bottom side (inside) of my jacket. After my introductory bow, I pull them and produce them seemingly from nowhere.

You'll find lots of ways to use them in The Wizards' Journal #14 - "Flower Power" AND/OR in The Wizards' Journal #21 "Flowers That Bloom With a Spring" on my site. You'll also learn how to make them not look like tissue paper origmai, but more like real flowers.

Vernet has a nice holder for these
that can be palmed and produce
one flower at a time very easily.

The vernet holder does not hold every type of spring flower!
A good effect is gloves to flowers. especially using a bouquet of spring flowers that consist of 20 green flowers & 5 red flowers, they look like a flower bouquet and not like a magic/clown prop.

Best way to use stuff like that is buy the Tarbell Books and the Mark Wilson Course in Magic... for starters.

Henri,

Because your flowers each have a green string attached to them, you do not have the flowers that are to be produced from Vernet holders. Yours aren't really meant to be palmed either. They certainly are not to be produced individually at all.

What you have is the bouquet. You should notice that each will fold flat. You then place them in the load area of any device that will take them and reveal them like a fire bowl, dove pan or other similar device. When they are then revealed they spring into a "bunch of flowers" and the strings keep them together.

All the best.

I found that a small binder clip works very well, as it is easy to release and holds the flowers well. I experimented with producing them from a silk and trying to take the pack of flowers from my sleeve. It works very well. This topic is a great example of how helpful the magic Café is. Thanks for all the tips and tricks.

If you wear a tux in your show then the white gloves to flowers is great. No gimmicks necessary, just a pair of gloves.

You can also make that part of your winter/Christmas/Holiday show... wearing a pair of "magic" gloves as if coming in from the cold outdoors, removing them and changing them to poinsettias/ snow flowers/ holly, etc. Your knit winter cap can be used with Jim Gerrish's "Ungimmicked Egg Bag" moves to produce eggs / snowballs/ candy canes. Your winter scarf can also be a dove banner/ transforming towel/ foulard for floating snowball, etc. By the time you get all unwrapped the show is over and it's time to wrap up again and leave!
