Mod Podge Recipe

Mod Podge is a type of glue that allows you to stick almost anything to your paper. You can also paint the mod podge over the photo to protect it and add texture. If you don't have any mod podge you can get a bottle of regular white glue and the dollar store and make a mixture of half glue half water to create your own mod podge.
