In 2017 I published Rip-Rite in The Wizards Journal #34, as a
basic torn and restored newspaper performed with a
supermarket advertising paper from our local store,
This year (2019), I will describe my TWO
versions of what has become known as a No Tear
Newspaper. You have already clipped out coupons
from a supermarket advertising flyer, with jokes for each
coupon bargain, but then you read the fine print and
learn that the joke is on you. Coupons must be clipped
out only when you check-out of the store. So
you'll have to restore all the coupons back to the
original flyer. Can it be done? Are you magician enough?
You almost get it right, but a few
coupons flew out of the process and fell to the floor
unnoticed! No problem. You put the escaped coupons into
the paper and try again.
This time you are successful. The
advertising flyer is completely restored and can be shown
on both sides.
Coupon Couwickie begins with
your pockets stuffed with coupons. You manage to produce
the skeleton of the flyer from which you cut them, but
how are you going to get them all back together?
This time you enlist the help of a
spectator who has magical powers he or she never
imagined. They take your pile of coupons and your
skeleton of a flyer and manage to put all but two coupons
(which were dropped on the floor before you handed them
over) back together.
The spectator has a second chance to get
it right, and this time the advertising flyer is
completely restored while in their hands! Now they just
have to bring it to the store and cut out all the coupons
again under the watchful eye of the nasty coupon store
manager. Once again, no problem. With a wave of a wand,
the coupons all flutter down to the desk of the manager
by themselves and you are back to where you started (see
