7. A can on a card
An illusionist takes a card and somehow makes a can stand on top of it. This act might seem impossible, but it’s actually one of the easiest tricks that any beginner can pull off.
If you take a closer look from another perspective you will see that the card is actually T-shaped. You can easily make this card at home by taking two ordinary cards and sticking them together in such a way that they create a T-shape. This way it’s pretty easy to make a can or a bottle stand on top of the card.
6. A phone in a bottle
The famous street trick goes like this: a magician holds some plastic bottle or any other container in his hand. He shows everyone that it’s an ordinary empty bottle and gives it to someone to prove it. Then the magician asks for someone’s phone. 1-2-3 and the phone has magically passed through the wall of the bottle and ends up inside of it.
How does it work? There are several ways of doing the trick and one of the most popular is all about the magic equipment. The magician wears a special finger stall with a small, but very sharp blade. After showing the audience that the bottle is whole, he secretly cuts a line in it that’s big enough to push a phone through. No magic here, really. Just a sleight of hand.
