Metamorphosis Bill to Butterfly



This may be the perfect birthday party trick... Heck, it's perfect for ANY party!

An envelope is displayed and shown to have a wand printed on it.  A card is removed from the envelope.

On the card is a picture of a butterfly.  The card says "Like a butterfly" and when opened it says "you're changing into something more amazing each day".  And there is a lone dollar bill in the card.

The card is closed and the empty envelope bearing the image of the wand on is waved over it in a magical gesture.  Lo and behold, when the card is opened again a butterfly with dollar bill wings emerges from the card and flutters away!


The card is clearly seen to be empty as if the dollar bill had actually transformed itself into the butterfly.  If you wish, you may cause the real dollar to reappear inside the card.

  • Very Easy to Do!
  • No Threads or Wires!
  • Special Card Does all the Work!

This very versatile trick can be adapted to many different kinds of events, parties and stories.  Most any type of greeting card can be gimmicked to use in the routine.  But we supply a gimmicked card perfectly suited for the effect, along with an ordinary duplicate which may be examined.  The specially printed butterfly card you receive will differ from the card in the video demo somewhat.  It is generic, suitable for use with a male or female spectator.  (view the current design)

The wings of the butterfly you receive actually look like currency, not like a normal butterfly. It's realistic flying action is provided by a wind-up mechanism, please note that the butterfly flies for a short distance before fluttering to the ground. The body is not made of wire, these are professionally molded out of plastic resulting in a lightweight and durable prop that you can rely on.

The Metamorphosis Bill to Butterfly is sure to create a magical moment of surprise and wonder that your audience will remember long after your show is over.  And it's as easy as opening and closing a greeting card.  You'll love this! The wings resemble US currency, in a stylized design reminiscent of the pattern of a butterfly wing.  With care, the wings could be replaced with your choice of printed or real currency.

Includes special greeting card, mechanical butterfly and full instrucitons.  Also includes one ordinary greeting card you can leave laying around for examination.

I use Metamorphosis in a show last week. It was a fine piece of magic and fit with my joke about my retirement fund taking a dive.

This is an awesome way to present metamorphois without stage equipment. My only complaint is the butterfly doesn't fly as well as I had hoped. However it is still worth the money also thanks for producing the extra envelopes.
