Did you enjoy the Snap-Change Card magic trick Performance and Tutorial Video? I hope it was easy for you to follow. Here we do a recap regarding how best to perform this trick.

You do a double lift and making sure the cards are squared up to each other.. grip the cards together with your thumb and middle finger.

Then place your first (index) finger just above your middle finger making sure slight pressure is being forced between both fingers and your thumb.

Using a snapping motion you are going to drag the front card behind the second card making sure the first (index) finger pinches the second card firmly.

This will help the first card stay perpendicular and hidden behind the second card. If you watch the video carefully you will see that you will need to play around with the position of your fingers.

Once you feel comfortable with the positioning then practice this trick so it looks perfect.
