In two of my PDF downloads (BAR TAB & Bill Burner Clear) you'll find a few tricks with cigarette lighters. I recently found out that there are other cigarette lighter tricks in Jay Sankey's SANKEYLIVE dvd that make us of the warning sticker that comes on lighters. The trick below can be incorporated with these lighter tricks because it uses the warning sticker too.

The trick is simple. Actually it's not really a trick but it's a nice ending to a trick with the lighter. What happens is the sticker on the lighter becomes a sort of business card.

The magician barrows a cigarette lighter from a spectator. He removes the warning sticker from the lighter (With their permission of course). The sticker is dropped in the performers pocket then appears back on the lighter. The sticker can be made to vanish and appear from the lighter at will.

At the end the lighter is handed back to the spectator and as they look at the sticker they notice that it says:

"The magic of (Your Name)" followed by all your contact information. In other words the sticker is now your business card.

You obviously have to print up some fake warning stickers. Try to get the font and letter size as realistic as possible. The top line will be printed in red just like a real warning sticker.

You can pick up some mailing labels that are close to the right size or even full sheet sized stickers and cut them into shape. Once you have some made you can carry them in your wallet or something. When you're ready to perform you peel one off and finger palm it in your left hand sticky side out. So it's running across your fingers.

When you barrow a lighter that has a sticker on it you place it in your left hand in such a way that you secretly stick you business card sticker to the under side of the lighter (The side taht does not already have a sticker). Then you openly peel the real sticker off and pocket it. Now all you have to do is the paddle move to make the sticker appear back on. They won't notice that the words are different on it yet so do what ever trick you want with it.

At the end you simply hand it back. They'll usually examine the sticker. If they don't you can point out the altered sticker.

I hope you have fun with it. Tricks like this are great because they now have an unusual business card that they'll share with their friends.

After regaining my ability to hear after 20 years of deafness. I learned that there is magic all around you. The simplest sounds that amazed me you probably ignore. Look and listen around you right now. You'll find something you didn't notice before.

I like the idea a lot but unfortunately we don't warn people for lighters here in Holland, but I will find a way to put this to use somehow,
