'Flash' cotton/paper

I see that this is actually guncotton and nitrocellulose film (or ribbon?). I used to get students to make that in 'O' level Chemistry lessons. This device looks like fun, time to break out the concentrated nitric acid, sulphuric acid, acetone and cotton wool!

Thinking further, a small gas explosion with an injection of toulene might be even fancier.
