Pocket Tambourine Trick

The magician shows two tambourine rings, one a little smaller than the other. A piece of tissue paper is placed over the smaller ring and the larger ring pushed down on top of it, making a drum. The audience can see that there is nothing inside the drum yet, when the magician punctures the paper, a silk handkerchief is produced from within it. The drum and silk may be examined. Only part of the apparatus is shown here to protect the secret. Complete with instructions.
