The Advantus Tim Holtz Word Keys are dimensional, metal keys with inspirational words stamped into them. The package Includes seven keys in an antique finish (three nickel, two copper, and two brass). Keys vary in size from 1 1/2 to 3 1/8. Note: Keys will unlock your creativity and imagination, but probably not any doors.
Very heavy. The flat keys "life" "love" and "dream" work well without adding a lot of bulk. The skeleton keys are much thicker but still lots of fun and are easily altered with ink, sandpaper, etc. They fit best on greeting card fronts and scrapbook stuff where the bulk won't cause a problem.

Sometimes it's just the little things on a page that really make it... WOW! These are such a sweet little touch that make a huge statement on a LO or to the cover of a mini-album. Very sturdy and heavy. I like the different metalic tones too. Fabulous!!!
I have wanted these for so long now I finally have them!!!!
I do not mind heaviness, they look even better in person. The perfect vintage finding.
If you don't mind spending the extra buck get them, I dont think you will regret it at all.

How gorgeous are these?! I just couldnt resist them, and used the 'dream' one within about 5 minutes of having them! The reviews I'd already read were encouraging, and I dont mind the heaviness of them - makes them look more authentic to me!

We use these keys at our Bridging ceremony for our 8th graders
that are moving on the the High School.
We give them a key "to our school" with a thought word.
It is a very nice parting gift. A sturdy unisex cord for the keys would be nice too.

If you love using keys in your projects, you’ll adore these keys. The color, texture, and shapes make for a lot of fun, mixing and matching them with the key holes Tim Holtz also signs his name to. While some of them are thicker than I’d care for, they all still fit neatly inside my scrapbooks and add inspirational elements where I need them. I only wish that Holtz made more like these!
These key are the most awesome embelishment for any page... this is the second package that I have ordered and wish that I had ordered more... perfect for any page... use them on my "boy" layouts all of the time!!!

Solid, antique-looking, beautiful keys! I was surprised at how lovely they were when they arrived. They add so much to projects but are so pretty that they would look great just tied with a ribbon bow/loop.
I love Tim Holtz products! I bought these keys because I love creative and unique embellies. The keys come in all different colors and sizes so it's easy to find something for a page!

Love the engraved words on the keys and the "old world" feel of this product but a bit pricey for a set of 7 keys.
