*Proceedings of the International Conference on Fun with Algorithms (FUN'98)*, Isola d'Elba, Italy, June 18–20, 1998, pages 32–42. **Abstract**:-
We present an algorithm for a magic trick. Given a polygon with holes
*P*, our algorithm determines a folding of a rectangular sheet of paper such that a single straight cut suffices to cut out*P*. **Length**:- The paper is 11 pages.
