Would like your list of illusions or single effect that uses an origami object.

The only criteria is that it be an actual trick not just a give away and that an origami object be integral to the trick.

Pm me or post here I will compile and post the final results.

Thanks all.

I use an oragami bird (the flapping wing kind) that I make out of a piece of flash paper.

I bring out the pre-folded bird from my pocket and extened its wings back out and do a few little flaps of the wings. I then place it in my dove pan and set it on fire, cover and produce a live dove!

Michael Close has a few origami effects in his Workers 1,2 & 3 series.
One is a napkin-bunny, another is a playing card-frog, a paper-bird and a dollar bill-Christmas tree.

The napkin-rose is mentioned somewhere here at the Café'.

I have Michael Close's Signature dvd and in it I learned how to make a frog from a card for the Frog Prince effect. Very cool! Kids just love it.

I would also recommend Michael Closes´ "Workers" books. Or simply buy his ebook. The price is excellent for what you can.

Michael Close's The Imagination Tester is the best use of origami in magic I have ever seen/done. A blet and buckle figure folded from a single paper becomes two separate figures. Great!. It is in Workers Vol 3 p 18 or on the Workers e-book (a fantastic deal: all five volumes plus updates in a searchable PDF format). Learn this and you will astound your audiences time and again.

Sorry. I pulled the wrong Volume. THe Imagination Tester is in Vol 4.

Learn Starcle by Dan Harlan. Its Origami like, but with a torn and restore effect with a surprise ending. TIP: Present it as magic, not a puzzle.

I second "The Imagination Tester". It's the best origami effect that I have seen.

Technically, isn't the old "Budda Papers" effect a simple form of origami?
It's one of those effects that makes magicians yawn and/or roll their eyes, but that lay audiences truly enjoy when it is presented well.

There is a nice origami trick on http://www.professorwonder.com/magic7.htm
You have a square picture of a magic hat and you then fold it into a rabbit from a hat. Try it not bad for something different.

There are so many great things to do with paper and paper napkins:

Paper balls over the head
vanishing napkins-do as I do
card stab through napkin
card through napkin
Triple restoration (Ramsay)

more origami related, use models to replace spectator for selecting cards (eliminate cards that the audience stop the model on) Instant origami models- a quick switch with a prefolded model can look quite impressive- not expected at all!

If you extend the list to newspaper magic then we would be here all day long- Gene Anderson Newspaper magic....

So much potential- packs extremely small, plays as big as you like! If you hadn't already guessed I am indeed a fan of origami!

Frog Prince is one of the best effects you can learn.
