Hi I am childrens magician and this is my first post.

in this video the girl makes her ribbon become a rose and I wonder if anyone know if this trick is a commercially released product? If not do anyone perhaps know a similar effect?

I am grateful for any help and comment! Smile

Hello RobinL Welcome to the board.

The effect you are talking about is not the standard effect that you can buy from many dealers which is known as silk or ribbon to rose which is an automatic transformation, and they are not cheap.

If you watch very closely you will see that she is actually using the idea of a self tying bow / ribbon that is very popular at Christmas time for putting on gifts. These are sold in shops in the UK as a self tying bow and can be easily picked up very cheaply.

All you would have to do is use the stem from a plastic rose , adapt it slightly, and you will be able to do the same / similar effect. The bow that looks like a flower is formed when you pull on the thread that is zig zagged throughout the ribbon.

Hope this helps.

Robint, welcome to the Café, we are here to help you become successful.

As mentioned, this is not a ribbon, some performers change their magic effects to meet their ideas and needs. Below is the closest marketed tricks for what you are asking for a listing on.

Here you go, pick your version, all are sleightly different.

Here a cheap version, it is just like you see in the video.
