Time Warp is a free card trick, which is a cool trick where two cards are folded together.  The amazing visual element of the trick is that one of the cards has a seemingly impossible transformation right in front of your chosen spectator's eyes.

This trick is one of the greatest visual close up magic tricks of our generation which you can have in your repertoire.  As you will see the simple preparation and handling will leave you ready to perform and leave you clean.  

The evidence is left in your chosen spectator's hands. So what are you waiting for. Go and grab two cards you do not want and let us get into the performance and secret of this trick. As with all tricks, it is best to practice in front of a mirror so you can watch yourself perform.

The Effect

You get two cards which can have the same backs or you can use cards from different decks, it is your decision.  They are folded in half (one length ways and the other width ways), and the width ways folded card is placed inside the length ways folded card.

The secret is a rip halfway through the width ways folded card and then the clever turn over is all done in front of the spectator.

It is all magical and is a trick you can easily perform on the street. Watch the video below and master the secret of the magic trick!!
