The cup through table magic trick is really good fun and works on the magic principle of misdirection. No gimmicks are required and it is all about the presentation.
The only part that you need to make for the cup through table magic trick is a square piece of paper. We make a square out of a letter or A4 piece of paper.
TIP: Make sure that the paper you use covers the whole cup when wrapped over it. Refer to the video instructions to see what is meant by this.
Fold the top corner of the paper towards the lower opposite side. Fold it down to where the paper forms a right-angled triangle. Make sure all the corners touch each other.
Flatten the fold as shown in the picture left.
Cut the rectangular piece off and open up the square.
