Want to make a "permanent" valentine?  One that will last for years and forever be a reminder of the bond you have for one another?  With this instructable, a few tools, some concrete mix and a little work, you can do just that.  Easy to do, this stepping stone size heart with names should last for many many years.  A mold is made for the heart itself, letters are cut out of styrofoam packing material on a hotwire instrument, and cement is mixed and poured into the mold, around the letters.

Step 1: Gather Materials and Tools

Materials needed to make these stones: plywood or mdf for base, cardboard of various sizes, acrylic caulking compound to use around edge of mold, plastic grocery bags, cement or concrete mix, various wood working tools, a bandsaw is especially nice to have, a hotwire machine, and cement working tools.
