The Rubber Band Card Trick is a very functional trick and is in fact an easy card trick, which will add to the list of tricks you can perform with a deck of cards, plus a rubber band.
It makes a chosen card escape from a deck of cards using a rubber band.
It is a brilliant trick to have within your repertoire of tricks you can use when performing table magic. It is all in the setup of the trick and the performance.
You will of course need to practice the technique thoroughly to get it spot on.. but once you do you will see it is a great opening to your show. One way of perfecting your technique is to watch yourself perform in front of a mirror; this way you can pick up on any mistakes you may make whilst practicing.
Here at Free Magic Tricks and Illusions we want you to start off knowing the basics and moving forward to more complex tricks. This trick is complex so we suggest you watch the video a couple of times until you learn the best way to perform the trick yourself.
You can then progress to performing the trick for others after you practice the trick until you can do it yourself without fault.
Now watch the trick below carefully and enjoy the performance from MisMag the card trick tutor.
You must remember that while MisMag makes it look easy, you will need to practice it very carefully. The timing needs to be correct and you will need to master some moves.
You will need to know the rubber band move (performance below).
It is a lovely move and one you could use for many effects. It is simple and elegant at the same time. Once you have learnt the rubber band move, and can perform it perfectly, you can then learn how to perform the rubber band effect in the next video.
This trick involves you making the card return to the top of the deck using a false under cut and then a crimp. The crimp is very important to most tricks.
You bend the card so it does not get attached with the rest of the deck when you bend the rubber band across the whole deck; this card gets left behind until you perform the second move which puts the rubber band into position.
Remember to watch the videos carefully to ensure you have the correct technique.
