Silk To Flowers Cage
From Newspaper Revisited
by Jim Gerrish
I never had much respect
for the old Silks From Newspaper trick when I
was a teen-age magician (1955-ish). It was too easy, too
simple, and not challenging in the least. It was designed
to produce 4 tiny silks by poking a hole in a sheet of
newspaper that could be shown empty on both sides, again

1951 magic catalog.
The trick came in a box with a gimmick and four
small silk hankies; red, yellow, green and blue
I recall. They were probably 6 inches square.
I'm all grown up, I have given another look at the old
trick and come up with some improvements that allow you
to use up to ten full size (12" to 18") square
or triangle or diamond silks, let a spectator help you
make a hole and pluck the silks from the paper, produce a
glass of wine as a partial finale, and then for the
"finally!" finale, transform the individual
silks into one huge silk or multi-colored banner.
Also included are
instructions for making my "Twitch Tube" for
visibly transforming the silks at the end.
