Crepe Paper Peonies | Lia Griffith

Does anyone else read Reddit? I’m subscribed to their DIY sub and was absolutely blown away by this amazing dress (click on the imgur link at the top) that alkikat crocheted for $30! It just goes to show that if you have the skill (or know someone who does!), weddings don’t have to be ridiculously expensive. Equally, wedding flowers can be made on the cheap and still look gorgeous - especially when they’re a tutorial from Lia! These flowers are made with crepe paper and what’s even nicer is that you can keep them after the wedding. There’s also a tutorial from Lia where she has combined these faux flowers with real flowers if you still want some lush greens in your bouquet. So many creative ideas to make your day even more special!

FemFLASH February #16: Peggy/Angie

When Angie hears the knock at her dressing room door, shefigures it’s the stagehand giving her the ten-minute warning. The last thing she expects to see when she opens the door is Peggy Carter standing there holding a lush bouquet of red roses.

“You’re here,“ Angie says.

“Did you really think I would miss your stage debut?”

Angie can feel tears pricking at the corners of her eyes, but she can’t mess up her makeup now, not when there’s no time to fix it, so instead she laughs. “Last I heard, you were a wanted woman.”

Peggy’s smile is wry, apologetic. “Still wanted by some, I hope.”
