Starburst Ribbon Pin

This Christmas I made Mouse a white dress and jacket. For Easter I decided to repurpose the dress to get a little more use out of it. Since she is growing like a weed lately, I figured I didn't have much time. I asked Mouse to pick a spring colored ribbon and this is what she chose. Ok, really she chose pink but the store was out of pink ribbons and this was her second chose. Which I am very happy with.
I tacked (made small handmade stitches every two inches) the ribbon on to the front of the dress and left the back long so we could tie it in a bow. I wanted a center broche to add some fun to the dress. Here is how I made the pin:
I took some white felt and cut it into the size pin I wanted.
I then took the yellow ribbon and cut it into 1.5 inch strips. I added a strip of hot glue along one edge and rolled the ribbon. I then hot glued the rolls onto the felt in a sunburst patteren.
I did three layers of the rolled ribbon. Hot gluing them to each other as I went. I then hot glued a rhinestone button to the center and a pin to the back. Here is the finished look, this is Mouse and her Great Grandma Lil.
