Paper hat tear

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

Hi, am looking for a paper hat tear that uses a chefs hat rather than a sorcerers or some other. Came across one in the last year but can't seem to find it again. I know its out there. Any leads or suggestions?

Look up Bob Little (I think in Hatboro, PA). He makes lots of different hat tears.

Do you want to make them or buy them ready made? The ones you make yourself are much better than the ones you buy, and you'll find directions for making the Chef Hat (plus apron included) in Jim Gerrish's "Ungimmicked Egg Bag Routine" on my site, The Magic Nook. Just skip by the egg bag, the flower canister, and the magic oven directions and you'll find embedded deep within the instructions for making your own chef's hat. It could be the best $3 you ever spent, and I don't even get a penny of it!

Elisah Goodenoughs Tearable Magic also features some great hat tears. This is available from the Magic Nook.
