This is my first magic instructable, so if you would like to see more tricks, leave a comment about what kind of trick you would like to see explained/performed! Also, I did not create this trick. My credit goes to Jerek1:20, for he is where I saw this trick first.
Oh my god. This is so simple. I feel embarrassed how easy it actually is. Nice trick, and thanks for sharing.
