Jumping Rubber Band

Ok, so a little background info. I'm a freshman in high school. I make most of my friends through magic. This trick is one of the easiest I know, so hopefully I can help out some future magicians

Step 1: Supplies

Things needed for this trick:
-Rubber band
It's best if the rubber band is borrowed, since it heightens the illusion

Step 2: Setup

If the rubber band is loose, double it over like so. If it is a smaller rubber band or a hair tie, you might not need to do this.

Step 3: Beginning the Trick

Make a fist, and wrap the band inside and out of sight

Step 4: The Effect

Open your hand and the rubber band will appear to jump across your fingers!

Step 5: P.S.

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.
