this thing is a veritable treasure trove of ancient (but still awesome, imo) stash! but then, the thing i love about sticker mandalas is that they are the best vehicle ever for using up bits and bobs. because you don't need a lot of any one thing, and nothing needs to match or even make sense together, really. something that's a bit important, however, is *SCALE*. because if you use stickers that are all the same size, the mandala will feel... un-dynamic? i'm not sure what the word is, but your eye will just sort of get stuck, if that makes sense. having larger things in the center and moving out towards smaller ones, just looks better. i do also like the precision of starting with a perfect circle, so i traced a roll of washi tape with a pencil to make the ring where i placed my cupcakes, then covered it with the large center stickers. for the "rays" of the mandala, i didn't measure, as such; but you'll notice i used a gridded paper, which is an excellent way to cheat in this sort of situation!
