Urška Cirnski says:

i love it❤i love how creative you are. love your vids❤ i realy like all your diys they are realy special and unique…❤

Liz Brochu says:

would love to see how you would rebind a hardcover spiral bound book with stitching. If the cover is hard, it won’t bend , and I would think that it would be hard to open. but all the holes are already there, so there’s no need to make your own, like saddle stitching.

Bridget Umphryes says:

Nice video! :)) More Kona videos please! :)))

Izzy Stephan says:

hiya! just wondering if you could do a video on XXL books or maybe one on an old-school grimoire?

Sweet Ingenuity says:

The galaxy edge looks so good! That’d be such a nice gift for someone, finding a copy of one of their favourite books and then customizing it with a painted edge to match its contents…

The JemmaGrl says:

So…I’ve been wracking my brain trying to find a way to easily and cleanly color the edges of my journals. Tried the spray paint idea – and I didn’t like the outcome…still trying to find the best paint. STAMP PADS, girlfriend!! I was at AC Moore and they had a whole bunch of colors on sale for less than $1. The sample turned out amazing!! If the edges are clean/sharp enough – one could also use stamps. Watching this video, I think it would be neat to use patterned stamp – or I was thinking of stamping a full name 🙂 Have you tried this method? I’d love to hear what you thought of it.

K Seng says:

Really love the galaxy gild more than the flower pattern, but definitely will try both. I like the contrast of colors in the flower pattern journal and I’m going to use a variation of that to spruce up mines. Probably a duck and stars pattern. The galaxy one I’ll definitely use to spruce up a gift for someone. Super cool! Thanks for the vid.

Mysteries of Writing says:

This looks stunning! I’m thinking of painting the galaxy design on my planner! Thanks for this awesome tutorial. It’s amazing! 😀

Aliya DeBartolo says:

I’m pretty sure you’ll say no but could you do something either just anime/manga themed or something just Attack on Titan themed?

Angry Cat Crafts says:

OMG!!!! This is so cool, Thank You!!

Amarante Music says:

Thank you again for using our music!

Natalie Gardner says:

I really want to do this to my Harry Potter collection but I’m scared I’ll ruin them… I think I’ll practice on some random books from the thrift store just incase I mess up and end up ruining a book haha (after reading the books of course!)
