Circular Narrative Template

The circular narrative template places one symbol in the center surrounded by 2-12 symbols. Great for circular story visuals, cycles, choice boards, and more! Check out some great ideas to do with this template. 

You can just place one picture in the tray and then choose "number of small pictures" to have emoty boxes surrounding.
