After filling in the details, you will see a page where you can add your own custom stickers. In order to create a pack, you need to have at least 3 stickers in your pack.
Now, tap on "Publish Sticker Pack" and then tap on "Yes, Publish" and now you will be greeted by a pop-up asking whether you want to add this sticker pack to your messaging platform. Tap on Add.
