My son loves magic tricks…. he loves watching them almost as much as he loves doing them himself.  Today I’m going to show you how to do your very own Trick that will throw your friends for a loop.  I’m going to show you how to step through a playing card.  If you don’t want to use a playing card you can use a postcard or piece of paper the size of a playing card.  This is one of those stunts that Sounds like a “trick” until you prove that “seeing is believing” by actually showing that it can be done.  With some simple cuts in the card you will be able to actually step through a card.  Let me show you how.

Step 2



Cut a lengthwise slit in the center of the card

Step 3

Bend the card along the slit. Then cut crosswise slits, starting from the center slit toward the sides; then from the sides toward the slit, in alternating manner. Space these equally and finish with a cut from the center slit toward the outer edges. But in doing this, take care never to cut completely through the card. The cuts should finally appear as in Fig. 3.
