Keep things neat or sprawl them around, centre all of your items in one spot, or fill the frame completely, experiment with new, interesting backgrounds or use the same clean surface for consistency. There are no hard and fast rules to the flat lay, so you can have fun adding and moving things around until you get a look you’re happy with.
