Acrobatic Matchbox

The instructions explain the effect as follows: The matchbox is taken from the pocket and placed on the palm of the hand – and slowly the box creeps forward then mysteriously opens. The magician shuts the box – yet again it moves forward and this time stands on end and opens whilst standing, in a most uncanny fashion.
