This is a good idea, you want to do a trick that has been taught over and over again on countless TV shows, in other words, a trick that almost everyone knows. You wouldn't demonstrate how to do STS or Greed, to name two.

The torn & restored napkin trick is good, and will probably win you points from your teacher.

When I was in college, we had to "sell" something. I sold a "special" dollar bill: It was printed upside down (joke), it floats, (IT), it can't be punctured, (misled), automatically restores itself if seperated, (torn & restored), and vanishes for safe keeping.

I only had a limited amount, and the bills could be purchased for a mere five dollars.


I sold four.

Sweet.

You reminded me of another point, You get extra credit if you bring in something for each person in the class. (And thats why everyone did cookies/brownies/cupcakes/muffins/etc...)

I tried to think of something, the teacher tried to think of something, and my friends tried to think of something. What "Magical" thing can you give out that wont expose a good trick?

I guess you could do torn and restored napkin, there’s a video on the forums right now and you could use similar patter, give everyone 2 napkins and have them do the effect with you, then at the end they will all have 1 ripped and 1 restored napkin and you will have 2 restored ones ☺. That’s what I’d do.

Best of luck

Rob, Could you please get me the link to this, thanks.

Also i thought about making little laminated cards of the golden rules of magic. (You know, the rules on the first page of every magic book on earth).
What do you guys think of that?

Thanks for the replies everyone!

EDIT: Nevermind Rob, i didnt know it was a trick you had to pay for. I didnt know you can sell such a simple trick, even with the twist on it its still obvious lol. I still might use that, Thanks Anyways!
