What You'll Need:
- A Dollar Bill
- 2 Paper Clips
At the Party:
- Practice this trick a few times before the party to make sure you've mastered it.
- First, fold the dollar bill and attach the paper clips exactly as shown in the illustration to the right.
- Then, in one fast motion, pull the two ends of the dollar bill away from each other.
- When the paper clips pop off, they should be connected to each other.
Make up a funny story to go along with this trick, and tell it as you demonstrate the trick for your guests. For example, "Two paper clips were once in love. But, alas, their families did not get along, and they were forbidden to see each other. However, the paper clips loved each other so
much that they could not stand to be apart, so they ran away together. They found a judge who said he would marry them for $1. He placed them both on the dollar bill, and as he snapped the bill, he announced that they were Mr. and Mrs. Clip..."
