In Workers and in the book Workers 4. Mike Close does an orgagami trick with a bolt and something. Making it real. Does anyone have any other ideas on different items instead of the bolt to make real

First of all, the belt buckel doesn't actually become real...I was very confused at the end of this trick. I love Mike's stuff but this trick left me saying HUH? and So What? Anyone else?

He's an oragami guy.
The effect was that 2 piece of paper eventually became one... or verse vica.

It was just an oragami surprise.

How about a stick of chewing gum?

The blackened areas for the bolt are replaced by corresponding sections of a chewing gum wrapper. You could probably do this with an inkjet printer.

Fold it up per Harbin's Bolt and Frame, and then switch it for an empty frame containing a real stick of chewing gum.

Pull the stick of chewing gum free and let the spectator have it. Take the empty wrapper back from him and slide it back into the frame. Switch it for the origami model and unfold to show the wrapper has once again become one with the paper.

Craig,

This is a really solid idea. Great application.

But part of the charm is folding the bolt and frame in front of the spectator, so they can appreciate the "illusionary" effectiveness of the paper fold looking like two objects.

Now when you slide them apart- a real effect on the spectator.

A dollar bill? If you work a restaurant you could patter about some obnoxious customer who leaves this origami as a joke on the wait-staff. They think it's their tip, but it's just a gag. But you've figured out a way to beat him at his own game, yadda, yadda.

I won't alert the Treasury Dept. if you won't.
