Introduction: Make an Instructable Robot Stamp

I like making stamps and other things like that. And I also like the Instructables Robot. So here's an Instructable Robot stamp!

Step 1: What You Need

You will need:
  • Craft foam
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Juice bottle cap or something similar
  • Pen
Not shown but still needed:
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush

Step 2: Draw the Robot Onto Some Craft Foam

Don't make it too small otherwise it will be very hard to cut it out and cut put the holes.

Mine looks kind of weird but he'll do. I'll cut the legs to look better. He is being compared to a quarter here.

Step 3: Cut Him Out

Take your scissors and cut him out. Then cut out the eyes and the buttons and stuff on him.

Step 4: Glue

Now flip him over and put some glue on the back. Flip him over and put him on the juice lid.

Step 5: Getting Ready to Stamp

Take your paintbrush and put a good amount of yellow paint on the stamp (except for the wheels and ear-like thingies, put black on the wheels and red on the ear-like thingies), being careful not to over-do it. If the paint gets where you don't want it to be just wipe it off with a paper towel.

Step 6: Stamping

Put it on whatever you want to robotify and press down firmly. Don't press too hard or too lightly or else it will not look good.

Step 7: The End

Now you're done! You can also use this method to make different kinds of stamps. If you make any stamps I'd like to see them!

    OMG YOU COULD CARVE IT INTO A POTATO! POTATO STAMPS! sorry, saw it in a children's book.

    Ya i realized i didnt have potatoes so my dream of being a potato stamp seller has ended.

    How funny! Maybe next time you could make one that's super-detailed on a larger piece of foam. Then you can stamp giant robots everywhere!

    :D Good idea! It'd be fun to stamp it on the neighbors house....Hehe

    Good idea! I've got some Serenity/Firefly things that might work well with this. idea. :)
