      Homemade Mod Podge is crazy expensive. Make it yourself. You need.... A jar, Elmers Glue, Water. Empty the glue into a jar. My jar is just an old Salsa Bottle. Add water... You need it to be 50% glue and 50% water. Shake shake shake... And you are done!! I know it works because i used it to paste this paper label onto the jar :) It would make a great gift for your crafting buddies also.

      Mod Podge is crazy expensive. Make it yourself. When printing a quote or using one with markers spray first with hairspray let dry than glue to project. Most people use 1 cup glue to 1/3 cup water or a 50/50 mix. Use Elmer's Glue, not School Glue if you want a waterproof finish. Otherwise, your homemade Mod Podge will actually attract any moisture in the air and turn cloudy. If you use regular Elmer's Glue-All, it will be waterproof when your project is dry.
