The dice illusion is a good way to add a little bit of variety into your magic routine. Let's say you are into your 48th straight card trick (just joking), your audience can do with a break from all the card tricks. Something as fun and simple as this can be just what is required. In my experience, audiences love a bit of visual variety. They will thank you for it.
This floating dice illusion can be carried in your card box. Just cut it out and fold it along the creases then slide it behind the cellophane cover of your playing card box.
Take a small square of sticky tape / sellotape and stick it to the outside of the cellophane this time. You might want to fold one side of the square of cellotape over onto itself to form a little non sticky handle. This will make it a lot easier to get the tape on and off the box.
Now you are ready to make up the floating dice illusion anytime you have your cards. This makes for great misdirection too. Once you bring out this little trick of the eyes, everyone will want to have a go. Usually they will get up and move around the room or even leave the room and move to where they can find a mirror. This gives you all the time in the world to reset your deck for your next sneaky card trick.
So I hope you enjoy this first in a series of fun bits that you can use with your magic tricks and magic routines. None of these fun bits are big enough to be considered tricks by themselves, but you will find that by knowing them, they will build your knowledge bank of tricks and performance bits. Sooner or later you will be playing with a new trick, trying to find away to present it, and these fun bits might just be the thing you need.
There are two cutouts on the download below. You choose which one suits your needs the best. From my experience though the spots work better than the checks, but that could just be my eyes.
