I wasn't too sure where to post this (Move it if it needs to)

I found these Jumbo PaperClips at my local Wal-mart... Any ideas what I can do with these in a Magical Sense?? These PaperClips are fully functional like any other PaperClip and looks just like a regular-sized PaperClip.

The obvious one that comes to mind is to get a large jumbo bill and do the linking paper clip thing that we all learned from the Rice Crispy Box when we were 5. I kid, but I still use that bit when doing anything with Project Magic.

A while back I did a semi-impromptu trick with three different colored clips.
I asked someone to name a color of one of the unlinked clips.
Tossing them in the air they came down linked and the color named was in a certain position in the chain.
The linking part would be OK with the big clips and if you use three different size clips they could name a size. PM me if curious.

Using a clip instead of a banknote for 'Traveling Cash' would work. You could use elastic larger than normal.

A matrix or 'Chink-a-Chink' that begins with small clips and ends with a large one might be workable.

Spellbound type changes should work too.

Thanks for the tips. Jazz, I'd like to know more about have the selected clip be in between the other 2.

If anyone is interested in getting these, check your local Wal-mart in the Stationary Department. They are sold for $1 to $2 for a package of 15 Jumbo PaperClips. PM me if you cannot find them and are interested. I can check to see if my store still has them in stock and I can send them to you for the price and shipping and handling.

They'd make a good impromptu coin clip. Slide it on your back pocket, load it with a half dollar or whatever, then you're ready to easily steal it when you need it Smile

I recently saw Jason Andrews use this Idea to great avail.

There is a really excellent metal bend with a paper clip.

Carl Andrews has a routine that uses the jumbo clip.
