Sure Shot Card Through Glass
By Professor Spellbinder

You'll need to order a glass-bottom tray or a clear plastic bottom tray from your local gift store, Dollar Store, or Amazon.

When you follow the directions from this e-Book to decorate the clear bottom of the tray with a target, here's what you can do with it to make it magical.

Effect: A clear bottom tray with a target is shown to the audience. The magician puts his face behind the target as a joke, then removes a deck of playing cards from his pocket and spreads them out on the tray. A spectator freely chooses a playing card and signs his or her name across the front. The card is shuffled back into the deck. Holding the clear-bottom tray vertically like a target, you show the spectator how to shoot the cards up against the bottom of the tray. The signed chosen card visibly appears on the tray... but wait! It's not on top of the tray, but behind the tray! The card penetrates the glass or plastic of the tray and ends up on the back where it can be seen through the etched-on target.

You are not limited to the design of the tray as a target. My e-Book offers some suggestions, with reasons for the particular designs given. You can then take my design and personalize it in any way you like, with clever sayings, your name, pithy comments, etc. The e-Book shows you how to make the necessary gimmick that causes this effect to work with this tray. You can also use it with any clear plastic tray or glass bottom tray.
