Before home computers were around; I used to write a lot of hand written letters. I was always looking for ways to embellish my stationary and envelopes. Occasionally I will write friends or family members a special letter letting them know how much I love and appreciate them. Maybe when they are old,  they will stumble across one of my letters and it will put a smile on their face, " all of my family and friends know I am a huge Instructables fan." What could be better than an Instructables robot stamp on a letter, envelope, box or lid! I decided to try crayons and they worked perfectly! This instructable will show you how to make an instructables robot wax stamp! Let's get started!

Step 1: Supplies

Caution: hot wax will burn you and it can catch on fire! Please use caution.
This is what you will need:

A few yellow crayons a great way to use up broken crayons. 
Small tin can
Small sauce pan or candle warmer
Wax paper
Instructables robot lapel pin
1 or 2 Popsicle sticks
Red Marker

where can I get a pin like that?
I won mine by entering an instructable contest. Hope that helps.<br>

This is the original (and still possibly the CHEAPEST) tamper evident seal. No popping buttons, tearing tabs or funky holograms etc. Great stuff!
