Here’s a trick that’s easy to do, fun to perform and loved by audiences of all ages. You show two pieces of brightly colored tissue paper. You rip them to shreds. Next, you roll the pieces into a ball and place it into your helper’s hand. After some humorous by-play, your helper opens her hand and discovers the pieces have magically changed into a delightful party hat. Finally you give the hat to your helper as a magical gift. Professional close-up and stage magicians, clowns, MCs and storytellers use these hat tears. Many pros use them in every show they do.
