Free Magic eBook - Riveted Card Effect

RIVETED

With RIVETED, a spectator's chosen card is placed between two indifferent cards and a hole is punched through all three. The three cards are then secured with a common brass "butterfly" fastener. The cards are fanned and shown front and back to prove that they are actually RIVETED together. Next, while the spectator is holding the three cards, a handkerchief is placed over them for a moment and and whisked away - the selected card is gone! The missing selected card with the hole can be instantly reproduced and given away as a souvenir. An improved gimmick and handling make this golden oldie better than ever! No sleights. Easy to do, but a real fooler! We supply the 7-page, photo-illustrated manuscript, you supply the cards and handful of inexpensive items required.
