Thanks a bunch Richard! I went to shave this morning and set my face on fire!

Seriously, A wonderful piece of paper folding. Kudos to Genii's editor for the clear directions and photos.

You should see Eric Leclerc do it!

This is nifty, indeed! I wish I could see Leclerq do it, as it looks pretty slick even when I do it! This is damned near as good as the business in GENII ages ago about popping a 'wrap bubble' when 'breaking' a credit card.

Hi, Jim. That was Jay Sankey's idea.

Hi;
Razor Burn in the October issue is a great origami fold. Heres an idea that you might use if there is a book of matches on the table where you are working.
Remove the four kings from your deck and have one selected. (Force the KH)
Have it returned and the packet of kings mixed. While they are being mixed, make the razor from the matchbook, wave it over the packet of Kings and then have them find the King whose mustache is now shaved off. It's their card! Give them the razor.
