So,I will assume that a crafty fellow like myself will figure out the placement and operation of these? or are instructions available? I have looked at my nest over and over and can't quite get it.I realize that it is a self sealing envelope but do you seal the small flap during insertion or as the envelope is removed?

Redspadesmagic,

I question the ethics of your practices on the Café. I bit the hook, I sent a pm requesting help for making envelopes. What do I get in reply? An email soliciting donations for his .pdf solution for making envelopes. There was strange, broken English justification for such practices, and a quiz of Magic Café trivia was asked too (to verify that I am a magician I guess). That is not what this site is for.

Needless to say, I purchased some envelopes with the window from a local magic shop. Not impressed with the glue issues. Envelope sticks to flap. If anyone has a good solution they will share to HELP a fellow magician, a pm is appreciated. No solicitations.

The ones you buy through a magic vendor have printed instructions. However, I find some issues regarding stickiness.

Very smart
I was looking and searching how I could reproduce the little bag closed with a twisted elastic that was the nicest part of the old "plates" trick
Your envelopes are easy to make from actual envelopes with a pair of scissors, some regular glue and some post-it note type of glue.
Now if you are a detail freak (a I am) take from the internet, the image of a precious coin and print it from your computer on several places of your A4 paper sheet (also with the template of your envelope in light grey) and make envelopes with a nice coin photograph on the face of it... or a tiny photograph of yourself, name and mobile phone number as an ad.

Now one thing for redspadesmagic: you brought a great improvement to the ending of this effect... so improve the first part of your presentation as well (the borrowing of the coin and the marking of it). You obviously have more than the imagination required for that. At least add some enthusiasm and energy in your presentation...

An idea could be to borrow a coin after its date being noticed. Spellbound the borrowed coin (once only) for a historical gold coin (there are perfect replicas of a 50$ Indian Head available for less than 10$) have the "gold coin marked with whatever war paints that the spectator wants and ask him to sign on the other side his piece of art in Andy Warhole's style. Perform the effect and ask him to open delicately the envelope and give you what's inside. Spellbound the gold coin for the borroed one and tell the spectator to place it back in the envelope waiting for it to return to its gold condition...

Thank you for sharing anyways

I know I'm bumping an old thread here, but these envelopes are so expensive. I would love to learn of an alternative or how to make my own envelopes. I have actually used a simple 2x2 coin envelope with the flap folded the same as the wallets, which looks pretty good, but you can't hand it out sealed that way.

Just use a small ziplock bag.
The reset is very easy.

I find the Envelopes tend to tear during the loading of a coin. I find it better to use the cloth instead
