Miniature Pocket Illusion instructions include 4 pages. A description of the effect is below.

Matches are removed from a match box. A solid steel plate is handed for examination. This plate totally fills the inside bottom of the match box drawer. The drawer, with the steel plate inside, is placed inside the match box cover. Holding the match box in his hand, the magician asks a spectator to pass a long needle through the center of the match box-thereby penetrating the cover, the drawer and the metal plate! The explanation given for this is that the needle is specially fabricated of a material 100 times harder than the steel plate they examined earlier. A length of ribbon, yarn or thread is hanging from the open end of the needle.

The spectator pushes on the needle and it does pass right through the box and the plate, followed by the ribbon. The magician explains that the weak always submit to the strong-the needle being harder than the plate is passed right through the latter. The piece of ribbon is held at both ends and the drawer of the box is opened and everyone can definitely see that the steel plate is still in position on the floor of the match box drawer. The ribbon must be passing right through the steel plate! To further prove this, the magician holds the box and has the people holding the ribbon to pull on each end alternately. The ribbon passes to and fro! The ribbon is then pulled free of the box, the box is opened and the steel plate is dumped from the drawer. It is unharmed, free of holes and still on one piece. There is only one steel plate used. There is no switching and not a single false move in the routine. Only one needle and one length of ribbon are used. The match box, ribbon and needle may be borrowed. You will be able to perform this five minutes after reading the instructions. Truly, a close-up pocket illusion! An Eddie Joseph creation.
