Leave your friends begging for your secrets by performing this bit of sleight of hand.

Step 1: Put double-backed cards on ends of deck
Square the cards with the double-backed cards on the top and bottom, the blue sides facing the same direction.

Step 2: Arrange the Queens in the middle of the deck
Arrange the Queens between the double-backed cards, with all blue backs facing the same direction. Put the cards in the sleeve.

Be sure to remember how the cards are arranged in the sleeve. Know which way each suit on the Queen faces.

Step 3: Ask audience to pick a suit
Ask someone in the audience to shout the name of any suit. Announce that you will now make the Queen of that suit magically appear.

Step 4: Pull cards out of the sleeve, suited Queen face up
Say, “Now I will awaken your sleeping Queen.” Pull the cards out of the sleeve, with the Queen of the chosen suit face up and turned towards the audience.

Show the audience the empty card sleeve so they know you aren’t hiding extra cards.

Step 5: Fan the cards to show the Queen
Fan the cards, showing the audience the backs of three cards and the face of the card with the Queen of the chosen suit.

Step 6: Flip the Queen and show it has changed color
Pull the Queen out of the stack, quickly flipping it over to reveal that its back is a different color from the other cards.

Be careful not to show the other suit marking on the Queen. Cover it with your thumb or flip the cards quickly so that the audience can’t notice.

Step 7:
Return the cards to the sleeve and never let your audience know about the secret of your magic cards, no matter how much they beg!
